This past week has been a doozy! for sure! First my mom was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor and had emergency surgery… Then on her first day post-op while we were sitting with her during recovery, we heard about the horrific events of Newtown Conneticut. Heart breaking week. I know many people have posted that they hugged their kids a little tighter that night, but what about the rest of the days of the year??? Why not make a list today of 12 people you will write love letters to over the next 12 months. Or 7 people you will write love letters to over the next 7 days. Make a list, then sit down once a day, week or month and go through your list. Grab some paper and a pen and write a love letter. Tell them what you love about them. Who they are. What they mean to you. Get an envelope and MAIL it! Even if it is to your own husband or child, MAIL it. It’s easy to hug a little tighter in the moment of heart ache, so this will indeed be a CHALLENGE, which is what our 15 weeks has been about. Today my list is long. Each night I will write a letter and mail it the next day. I know there will be some days where I feel too busy to do this, but I will push myself to take time for what is truly important…. I encourage you to do the same! Perhaps the last letter you write should be to yourself! After all, if you don’t LOVE you… you know the saying… 🙂 Be kind. Show love. find Joy.!
