Say ‘I Love You’ Every Day

It is Mother’s Day 2019. Today is marked by me and my children reaching out to my wife to express our deep love and affections. To express in some small way how much we love our mothers – their sacrifices, their efforts over the years to guide and nurture us. It is always beautiful to see.

My mother passed away many years ago. I can no longer tell her those things. May I encourage you to say ‘I Love You’ every day. Don’t wait for the perfect opportunity. Today is your day to speak words of love.

Let me share a poem I wrote when my mother died in April 1998.

Again I would say to you, don’t wait for the perfect opportunity. Today is your day to speak words of love.
