I love you
Mitch Albom. Such an inspiring person/author, I'm just in love with his wisdom about life and its journeys. Here's a really touching encounter his Rabi once told him about. A man buried his wife. At the grave site he stood by the Reb, tears falling down his face. "I loved her", he whispered. the Reb nodded. "I mean... I really loved her." The man broke down. "And....I almost told her once." The Reb looked at me sadly. "Nothing haunts like the things we don't say." I find myself at times not able to express the way I feel to my loved ones, and its sad. Life is way too short to not show these simple acts of love to one another. I have told myself, since reading this, that I am going to be more affectionate with my family but I still haven't. I hope one day I can be the person I always dreamed of being, and maybe one day, soon, I will be.
