What will be the last thing you say today to your children as you drop them off to school, your spouse as you leave for work, your friends, your co-workers? Will they be words of love, kindness, appreciation?

Very often we get so caught up in the small things in life that we forget to convey just how much those that are closest to us really mean to us. However we’ve become experts at conveying our negative emotions, almost automatic.

What if you really tried today to not get mad, angry, or upset? What if you knew today was your last opportunity to share your last words with the people in your life. What would suddenly become less important?

What would your last words be?

“You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
