In the clip I posted, Rosemary M. Wixom tells of a story where a man who was being held captive only had 25 words to write to his family.
25 words or less.
What would you say to your family?
To your children?
I had to think long and hard.
I don't know what I'd say especially since I am all about words.
I love writing.
I write my children letters every few months and place it in albums and baby books.
How could I possibly condense words of wisdom, love and concern to my loved ones in 25 words?
Here is what I came up with:
I love you.
God loves you.
He is real.
Rely on Him.
Know your worth.
You are special. Don't EVER forget that.
My general words that contain so much depth.
I hope my children never forget their worth.
I hope they never forget what I went through because I didn't realize I was worth more.
I didn't realize that I am priceless.
I hope they know that without God, we are nothing.
There is a higher power, it is real.
I've felt the blessings and miracles of God.
I've felt His tender mercies that shows His love for me.
I know, He knows me.
I know He is always with me even when I feel alone and at my lowest point, He is there.
Children should always know they are special.
I hope my children feel just how special they really are through my actions and my words.
I hope they never forget. They are the most precious gifts I could have ever been given.
