Last Saturday marked the third anniversary of my dad’s death. Losing my father without warning to a heart attack was one of the most difficult things I have ever experienced. Even though I miss my dad every day, I am thankful that he left this world knowing how much I loved him. I always tried to take the opportunity to let my dad know that he was special and I was thankful for him.
That’s why I am so excited about Hallmark’s new campaign, Tell Them. Hallmark Tell Them encourages us to seize the moment and let our loved ones know how much they mean to us, before it’s too late. We never know how much time we have with the people we love, and we never know what our word of encouragement will mean to someone else.
Oftentimes we mean to do these things, but the craziness of life gets in the way. We get busy and forget to take a few moments to share our feelings with those we love. That’s why I love what Hallmark is doing for this campaign. On the Hallmark Tell Them Facebook page, you can make a vow to tell someone special exactly how you feel. Vows are serious business; just ask any married person! Making a vow and putting it in writing adds a level of accountability.
So what are you waiting for? Tomorrow isn’t promised. You never know when you will have another opportunity to tell someone how much you love them. Take the vow today!
