Thank-You Notes

This is a collection of thank-you notes to people I love (with one bully)

Thank you, Soleil

Thank you for the books you gave me on my birthday. I loved them all. I like “Journey to the Center of the Earth” best. Next time it’s my birthday, please give me “Boy” by Roald Dahl.
Thank you for defending me from the bullies. With you, I always feel protected. You were like my bodyguard.
Thank you for being my BFF. I would tell you my stories, and you would always listen (except the time I told you about the time I was a baby, when you answered, “Garrett, I was trying to sleep!”) and you would tell your stories in return happily.
Thanks for being my trusted friend. I would tell you my thoughts, and you wouldn’t tell them (except for the time I told you about giving Tiara and my ex-friend Rosel a bouquet of flowers during Valentine’s Day, you yelled at me, dumbfounded, “WHAT?!?! I’m gonna tell that to Anna.” You did tell it to Anna, and I got bullied).
Thank you for all that you did for me, Soleil.

Thank you A.Gabrielle

Thank you for making me happy all the time. Your attitude has the right mix of naughtiness, happiness and love.
Thank you for reminding me what to do. You always remind me of mama who always tells me what to do.
Thank you for the times you would complain that we were very noisy. You remind me to keep quiet, control myself from laughing, and turn down the volume of the television.
Thank you for the time we play together. We always had fun watching videos on YouTube, jumping on the bed, playing the iPad and more.
Gabrielle, if you weren’t here, none of this would happen.
I love you, Gabrielle.

Thank you Paul Jerome

Thank you for pulling tricks on me. You inspired me with many ideas to pull on everyone. Remember the time you put your accomplice Iñigo’s shoes in my basket and you and Iñigo acted like I stole it.
Thank you for bullying me. You taught me how to behave like a man. It’s like you are the teacher of discipline, too.
Thank you for stubbornly reading one of my notes to our teacher. You made me learn that I need a notebook with a lock to keep my notes secret.
Last of all, thank you for making fun of me. My life is like an “Oggy and the Cockroaches” life. Of course, you’re interested in the WWE, not cartoons.

Thank you Ninang Arlene

Thank you for sacrificing money to give us what we wanted even if we don’t ask for anything. Just writing this one makes me cry, because we are so far away and there’s a fee for shipping, and you still send us what we wanted. I’m still crying right now. Right now, since you lost your job, and you are saving money, please spend it only on what you need. I don’t want you to be poor, living on the street.
Thank you for downloading Skype so that we could see each other’s faces. I always feel that you’re in front of me, talking to each other. I would talk to you about many things, and you were always interested.
Thank you for being proud of us two: Gabrielle and me. You always commented, “Galing mo naman (you’re very great)!”. We always showed you what we achieved, and you are always happy.
Last of all, thank you for treating us like gold. In return, we will always love you very much.
