Three Little Words

Tonight, as I put C down to sleep, I told him "I love you".

And then I thought about how, for some people, those three words are the hardest to say.

Which means that some people rarely get to hear those words said to them.

I thought about that for a minute.

There was a time not so long ago in my own family history when this was the case.

I wondered how it came to be that I could so easily say those words.

I realized it's because I heard those words told to me every day in my home.

A kiss on the lips before bedtime.

And then,

"I love you."

And I'm so grateful for this legacy of love.

"May you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." -Ray Bradbury
