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