Love Letter to your parent

Receiving a love letter is a special treat and that’s why in 2022 for Valentine’s Day we ran a special contest for our Parenting Aging Parents community.

It was a great way for the Parenting Aging Parents community to share why their parents mean so much to them.

Thanks to our friends at Flowers Flowers Inc. who gave a gift certificate to the contest winner.

Read below to see this year’s contest submissions from our group to see examples of love letters and check out this helpful article about How to Write a Love Letter to Your Parents from co-founder Mike Barnes.

The Parenting Aging Parents community exists to help people care for aging parents and maintain those loving relationships. Please contact us with any questions about our resources or becoming a member of our virtual community.
