    Someday I will repay her kindness

    she really took care of(really took good care of) me, and one thing I remembered about her (is that) she wrote a letter to me at times. furtheromre(furthermore), she favoured me over everyone else. I always appreciate it. Therefore, someday l'II show my appreciation to her.
    ===================================
    1. If you always feel or have appreciate for someone's deed for you , would you say "I'm in appreciation of it all the time" instead of "I always appreciate it"?
    2. I think this should be corrected to "Someday I will repay her kindness", right?
    someday l'II show my appreciation to her.

    1. You can say I've always appreciated it or I'll always appreciate it.

    2. ...someday I'll repay her kindness is a nice alternative, yes.

    Re: Someday I will repay her kindness

    At the beginning, I would probably say "She took really good care of me".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I might, too, but both ways are really fine. Both ways really are fine. Really, both ways are fine. Both ways are fine, really.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
