It comes in different forms and sometimes when you least expect it.  You inspire me every day.  Your selflessness and kind, giving heart and yet your a still a man’s man.  You are tougher than you look and you should never be underestimated.  I read a great many books but I’ve learned the most from you , with lessons that you were never trying to teach.

There is something to be said for having the courage to say what its unsaid.  Why wait for a birthday or another Hallmark occasion?  That perfect moment?   Live in the present and say what you mean to say.  Don’t assume someone knows what you are thinking or feeling because more than likely they don’t or if they do they want you articulate it.

On the other hand, I  realize that listening better is equal to the articulation of thoughts and feelings.  It is what is unsaid that can be just as meaningful. I was given advice once, “go to the level of where the other person is.”   In order to do that we have to take a step back first.  Act with purpose.  Do not react because regret usually follows reaction.
