Thank you card for my daughter-in-law

My Dad is very ill and can no longer use the stairs, and so can't get to his bedroom anymore (he has a bed downstairs now). And his old room had become a bit of a dumping ground for the 2 walkers, wheelchair and other aides he can no longer use. So anyhoo my son and daughter in law came to visit and Phoebe decided she wanted to clean up my Dads old room, she spent about 3 hours sorting tidying dusting and vacuuming and now it looks lovely and fit for purpose. And so I made a thank you card ...
