As I was leaving the house this morning for the airport to travel to Dallas, my wife ,Lydia, came to see me off. I was in a hurry and rushed off the door without saying good morning and good bye properly.
On my way to the airport, I couldn’t stop thinking about this event. All that I needed to do was to take 30 seconds of my time to say hi to Lydia.
Here is how it would have happened:” Hi, Sweetie. How are you doing today? Did you sleep okay? I’m glad to see you and I hope you have a wonderful day. I am off to Dallas. I’ll see you tonight. I love you and the kids. Give me a hug and a kiss. Bye” That is all it would have taken.
This morning was a reminder for me that no matter in how much hurry I’m, all that it takes are 30 seconds to show my loved ones how much they mean to me.
