25 Words

I posted about disconnecting a few days ago.
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.
Never settle.
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.
