Fan Mail That Makes Me Blush

This letter from one of my readers literally had me all choked up!  Posted below is one of the kindest and most inspirational “thank you” emails I have ever received since I started Momsminivan.  I decided to reprint her letter in it’s entirety (with her permission) and include a link to her etsy shop so I can show her some support too.  And just so you all know, I could never have made MomsMinivan without my amazing readers, so I have to thank all of you too.  –Laurel (momsminivan)

Hi Laurel,
I’m a mom of four.  I am always looking for ways to teach my children creativity and how to have fun “unplugged”.  I didn’t learn very many of these things growing up because both my parents worked and I rarely had time with them.  When they WERE home they would often just sit in front of the T.V.  Now in today’s world, the computer can be an even bigger distraction than our generation had with television.

The internet can also be an amazing tool for good.  In desperation to find my children fun things to do besides video games I went searching for wisdom from other moms.

I am so thankful that I stumbled across your website!  From teaching my children string games, printable games to play in the car and making slime…  I’ve loved every bit of the fun things you share!!!

These are things that help us spend more time together as a family.  And quality/ quantity time with my kids is worth more than anything money could buy!  THANK YOU for making a wonderful difference in my experience of being a mom!

Thank you for taking the time to write to me! I can’t tell you how much it means!  FYI, Some of the activities she’s referring to are from my Momsminivan Youtube channel.

Hi again Laurel,
I’ve just recently noticed on my “stats page” some visits on my shop that have come from your website. So I had to come to your site and see how they were finding my shop from here. I never realized that you put a link to it here for your readers to see. Maybe you told me you were going to do that but somehow I missed that part. Thank you!!! That impressed me that you would be so thoughtful to do so! Thank you! Well, I’d like to return the favor and I’m going to put a link to YOUR website on my profile of my Etsy shop. Really more of us moms could benefit from your amazing example of being so involved with the people who matter most, our children!
