Dear [Recipients Name],

Many thanks for covering my shifts this last week. I know that it has meant doing double what you would normally do. I would have missed out on the family vacation if you hadn't agreed to do this for me. Whenever you need time off let me know and I will gladly cover your shifts for you.
