Ever since I lost my best friend to breast cancer, I have made a conscious effort to change how I end each and every conversation.
Whether in a chat box, text, email, or phone conversation...I end each conversation with "I love you". It doesn't matter if it's friend or family. It's important that anyone I have a relationship with knows that they are in my heart.
Each conversation and each interaction may be my last. I'm not being morbid, that's just reality. I want the last words anyone remembers me saying to be "I love you". Those are the words I want to be echoing in to whatever void my absence may leave. Any conversation where I don't say it is a missed opportunity.
So whether it is just for now or whether it will be forever...my last words are now and always will be...I love you.
