Stresses in our lives come regardless of our circumstances. We must deal with them the best we can. But we should not let them get in the way of what is most important—
And what is most important almost always involves the people around us.
Often we assume that they must know how much we love them. But we should never assume; we should let them know…
Send that note to the friend you’ve been neglecting;
Give your child a hug;
Give your parents a hug;
Say “I love you” more;
Always express your thanks.
Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.
Friends move away, children grow up, loved ones pass on.
It’s so easy to take others for granted, until that day when they’re gone from our lives and we are left with feelings of “what if” and “if only.”
~Thomas S. Monson (Finding Joy In The Journey)~
This Thanksgiving, take time to thank those that matter most to you. Put the thoughts in to words. Change “I hope you know how much you mean to me”. Tell them how much they mean to you. Quantify it. List it. Put it into words. Just tell them.
Grab a simple Thank You card, make your own, or use this simple stationary I use.
