Bad punch lines, burned food and unconditional love

by | Sep 8, 2022 | Blog | 0 comments

My parents were flawed (Dad told horrible jokes and Mom was challenged in the kitchen)… however, they loved me unconditionally.

I took that for granted until I had kids.

It soon became clear (as a flawed parent myself), that unconditional love was the best gift I could provide.

I was so moved by this revelation that I wrote my parents a short note pointing out how their influence helped me with my own children.

A few weeks after my parents passed away, while cleaning out their house, I found that note taped to the back of a kitchen cabinet.

I didn’t get to say goodbye to either of them but was certain I didn’t leave anything unsaid.

Don’t wait until the “perfect” time to tell someone how important they are to you.

If we number our days, we set ourselves up to live with intention. Download the Eulogy Exercise to get started.
