A reminder.

The word


is both a verb and a noun.  


(noun): a very valuable object, a person whom one loves, valuable, precious item, gem, angel, star, find, one of a kind, one in a million


(verb):  keep carefully (a valuable or valued item), cherish, hold dear, prize, value greatly, adore, dote on, love, be devoted to

This is a reminder to treasure (verb) your treasure (noun). When I say "you" here, I'm talking to myself too. As in cherish, value, and nurture your loved ones and your relationships with them. Enjoy and savor your time together. Be present. Look them in the eye. Listen with focused attention. Don't take them for granted. Let them know how much they mean to you. I'm a firm believer in the fact that you can't say, "I love you" too many times or too often. Maybe they already know, but it sure doesn't hurt to hear it. But even more than saying it, you should show it. Spend time doing activities that your kids enjoy. Watch their games and other events. Play games with them. Read to them. Have dance parties in the living room. Sing loud in the car together. Eat dinner as a family, around the table, talking about the highs and lows of your day. Spend time with your better half. Quality time, like going for a walk or talking over coffee. Cook together. Dream together. Talk about the little things. And definitely the big things. Invest in your relationship. Not just with material things and time, but also with your whole heart. Risk being vulnerable for the sake of being closer. 

We don't know how much time we have with our loved ones, but let's make the time we do have count. They're worth it, don't you think?
