Good Ole’ Uncle Vic April 2012
April 5, 2012 By: Victor Brick
A couple of weeks ago Lynne and I were bickering about something; I don’t even remember what it was. Then, I left for Philadelphia on a business trip and while I was driving, I called one of my old basketball coaching buddies whose wife had just passed away suddenly from a brain tumor. He said to me, “Victor, make sure you tell your wife how much you love her every chance you get because I don’t think I told mine often enough.”
Boy did that really hit home. I realized that it was silly for me to be unhappy with Lynne and that I didn’t always tell her how much I loved her and appreciated her.
I have since made a conscious effort to start doing that more. And I think this doesn’t only apply to a husband or a wife. This applies to your parents, your children, your siblings, and your friends as well. It’s important that you tell all your loved ones how much you appreciate them and how much you love them often, because you never know when you may no longer have the chance.
So, I’m really trying to be a kinder and gentler soul to Lynne. For the past couple of weeks I’ve even been bringing her flowers on a regular basis. Now, if I can just remember all this the next time we get into a spat.
Until we meet again, that’s it from good, ole’ Uncle Vic.
Thought For The Day: “Your children will learn about love, not by how you treat them, but by how you treat your wife or husband.”
