A Way To Thank Your Mom and Dad

This is something that I wish that I had done when I had studied abroad. My parents have always encouraged me to see the world and to get out of my own backyard. So studying abroad was really a no-brainer for me. I brought them back gifts from my travels, but I still wish that I had done something more. I never felt like the material possessions I gave them really signified what their support meant to me. Had I known about this cool idea, I would have done it in a heartbeat. All it costs is some paper and some markers. You can even make it at home before you go! Your parents will really appreciate something like this. It’s showing them how much fun you had and a picture like this is a great keepsake.

Thank you Mom and Dad for giving me the world
