The Right Words

Staying in touch with the important people in our lives is a rewarding and challenging task. Busy, busy, busy. Rush, rush, rush. It's too easy to lose track of the people you care about. Remember when you were a kid . . . you and your best friend tied two tin cans together with a rope, then stretched it tight? The right words are like that rope: They keep you connected to loved ones.

For many people, the thought of expressing feelings and emotions on paper is downright daunting. But it doesn't need to be! After all, the words themselves are not nearly as important as the thought behind them. Your thoughtfulness takes the most simple sentiments and turns them into gestures of kindness and gratitude, love and celebration, sympathy and support. Your thoughtfulness reaches out to the people you care about and reminds them that they are in your thoughts, your heart, and even your prayers.

It is my hope that the simple expressions in this new column at 365 Days of Memories will inspire you to create and keep connections with the people you care about.
