This was a message I sent to my children as they left for college in August and thought it would be nice to share with all of you as we approach the holiday season.
To my children:
I wish you happiness as you continue your journey.
I wish you laughter among great friends.
I wish you strength to persevere when things get tough.
I wish you courage to face any obstacle.
I wish you confidence to succeed in your chosen path.
I wish you love as you find that special someone.
I wish you a long and beautiful life and hope to witness as much of it as I can.
But my greatest wish is that you encourage one another, support one another, listen to one another and above all be there for one another without judgement or opinion. Just be there for one another.
Cradle to grave, you are on this journey together.
