Some of life’s greatest regrets come when we fail to share these thoughts and emotions. Remember, there will come a day when it is too late to share — life is like a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes way.
No one is guaranteed tomorrow. Children move away. Parents pass away. What words of blessing and encouragement do you need to share today? Someone needs to hear from you. The vapor is fading ... don’t let it vanish before you act.
As for my family, we begin middle school with our youngest and start another year of high school with our twins. Their “vapor” is visible in our home, yet we realize how quickly it will vanish and how precious these years of growing up are. There is still much to learn and say.
But today, I have a letter to write — a letter of blessing to express those thoughts and emotions that just never found the “right time” to be spoken. See you at the post office.
