Wisdom for My Sons: Never Miss a Chance to Tell Someone You Love Them

Never miss a chance to let someone know that you love them, or let them know you care. I can’t tell you the amount of times that I think about this, or something touches my heart and lets me know that life is precious. I feel this goes even further sometimes, as I think about the importance of being thoughtful and genuinely caring for another person. It feels like too often we don’t see each other, but in some ways we are all connected.

I love you. Three words, my sons, but probably three of the most important words you have in your vocabulary. There are other words, like "I’m sorry," that hold just as much importance. I encourage you boys to live by these words. I don’t know if someone else has said them. They probably have, but as I wrote them it reminded me of the importance of life and the world around you.

Live your life as an adventure. See the world’s beauty in every moment. Never cease to be amazed. Appreciate every person in your life, my boys. Never miss a chance to say, "I love you."
