Dear Peter
It is a rare occasion that one receives a gift so precious and meaningful to one’s life. The confidence and belief you have shown me regarding being a teacher is indeed a precious gift for me. It gave me reassurance and confidence I needed; most of all, it rejuvenated my dream and drive to be aware of student’s need is possible and still teach. Because, that’s what you did for me. I have been questioning whether my quest was possible with closing of schools, budget cuts and teacher lay-offs. Somehow, I lost site of my dream and drive, but I found it _____ through you!.
Furthermore I want to thank you for understanding my health problem, and I want to thank ______ for speaking and informing me about my mediation.
Before closing, I wish you, joyous Christmas & New Year!

Dear Dr. Haiman,
I want to thank you for coming to talk to the San Ramon Mother's Club yesterday. You'll remember me when I tell you that I'm the one who was crying.
I really appreciated your way of approaching parenting. I think my tears came because you touched on several areas that are very close to my heart. During the break, you spoke with a woman who knew her second child was her last. This is true for me, also, and I've been struggling with that and with the fact that my 18-month-old baby is growing up. I have a difficult time getting rid of anything that represents his babyhood (i.e. his infant bathtub, even though he hasn't used it for over a year.)
As I told you yesterday, I've also been struggling with the fact that my husband, pediatrician, and friends are encouraging me to quit breast-feeding. After talking with you, I feel strengthened in my view that I'll let him quit when he's ready.
It may have seemed as though I was upset by the things you said. I wanted to let you know that, on the contrary, your discussion reaffirmed what I had been feeling, but thought was wrong because others in my life had disagreed with me.
I was amazed at how much you cared about each person's situation. I also wanted to thank you for telling us what is best for our children, despite the fact that it wasn't always what everyone wanted to hear.
