Ok so i read about gifts to parents to say thank you. Well i decided i want to write a letter to my dad to give to him at the rehersal dinner to tell him thank you for eveything he has done for me in my life. This is where i get lost i suck at writing letters! Dont even know how to start it? A little back ground on him he is my stepfather who has raised me since i was 6 years old and has putt up with alot of crap from me over the years. So if anybody has any suggestions i would realy apperciate it.

I can’t really give you a template or specific ideas about what to write. I think once you start writing it, the words will flow. You’ll have a few rough drafts I’m sure, but when it comes from your heart, the wording isn’t important. Its the sentiment. He won’t care how you articulate yourself, he’ll just love that you took the time to tell him how much you appreciate him.

I agree with @Jennifer_Espos – it doesn’t have to be the most artiulate letter ever. Just so long as it comes from your heart. You could write it with crayon and a mess of spelling and grammar errors and he’d still love it.
What a sweet idea!

I’m doing this as well – I wasn’t going to, until I posted this:
Then people were like “you should share this with your parents!” – so that’s what I’m going to do 🙂
Parents love stuff like that. I might just steal Candy’s idea of using crayons.

I find when I write stuff like this, I start writing and it sounds totally stupid, but I keep writing and push through that (it usually starts with something like “I am writing this letter to tell you thank you” which you would obviously never do, haha). Later it gets better and once I’m done and feeling more comfortable, I go back and find I can cut the whole first part of what I wrote and either leave it out or else replace several rambling sentences with one better sentence.
It will flow eventually.
