Sweet gestures of appreciation
Everyone has a language of appreciation that resonates with them – whether it is through gifts, words of appreciation, acts of service, quality time or physical touch.
Our host Carole Mace shares a heartfelt letter from her students written to her; and another host, Margaret Holder, was brought to tears when she received a surprise visit from her long time student who is still in touch with the family.
The letter reads:
Dear my lovely host family,
It is hard for us to express how grateful we feel to be in your house. You have given us the most enjoyable time since the day we moved to Canada. We felt so appreciated that we chose you guys to be my host family. Living with your family made us feel like we had a second home. Also, we felt so luck to have meals cooked by Carole every day, as well as perfectly steak cooked by Brian on the weekend. (You guys gave us a feeling of eating in a 5-star restaurant 😉 Kitten and Andy brought us so many relaxing moments too. Spending time with you helped me learn many things from Canadian culture, and Carole’s life lessons which will be helpful for our future jobs.
Thank you so so much!
We love you all Carole, Brian, Jessie, Kitten and Andy
Linh and Phuong
