  • Some sort of photo album of the entire family? Cook them a special dinner one night, give a massage? Tough...

  • Hmm.. maybe invite them over for a nice dinner and during dinner make a toast letting them know how much you appreciate everything they do for you and your family. And also like the first poster said. Make a card or even buy one, either way and write a letter to put in it with words from your heart. Then after dinner give it to them to take home. Idk. Hope this helps. GL.

  • Be available. Life works in cycles and there will come a time when you can be there when no one else can or wants to. Daily kindness and saying thank you goes a long way.
