It’s true that a picture says 1,000 words — literally SWEET words.
Dad was on his way back from death’s door, still in the hospital months later and working hard to regain his health. I was back home, 700 miles away from Mom and Dad.
One morning my cellphone rang when I was jogging; it was Dad. When I answered he said, “Hello, My Precious One.” I smiled and laughed quietly; he would never know how much he had touched my heart with those special words. I replied, “Hello, MY Precious One.”
From that day on that’s how we started our conversations. Sometimes he would say it in funny ways, like “Hellooooo, My Precious One!” It always lifted my heart to hear his voice; it will forever be etched in my mind. Below is a picture of his voice saying those words; it was recorded as a phone message.
There is more to this “Precious” story on my website CWLauro.com, including another picture of more of Dad’s words.
Thank you for continuing to “listen” to this heart-warming story.
Soon we will also touch on different topics in the days to come, always focusing on The Inside Advantage theme of living more deeply, joyfully, and successfully. I hope you’ll continue to join me on this journey…
Blessings, Love, and Light,
