I Love You, Too

My daughter once asked why I always say "I love you" whenever we say good-bye in parting or at the end of a phone conversation. "Mom, I always know you love me," she said.

I explained that life is short and unpredictable. If anything happened to me between now and the next time we spoke, she will at least remember my last and most important words.

Some years later my daughter and I were ending our nightly phone chat. "I love you, Mom," she said. I smiled. No doubt this phrase would be carried on to her children. It is a good thing.

Even as the last light bids me "goodnight", I will be saying, "I love you, too."
