…me! Today’s my birthday. Now, before you drop everything to head out and buy me a gift, hear me out.

In honor of my birthday, I want you to do something for someone else. It’s kinda like an unbirthday.

Here’s the deal: Write a letter to someone you care about letting them know how much you care.

I bought three journals, one for each of my kids. The plan is to journal my thoughts about them as they grow up. Then, if and when I’m gone, they have a personalized collection of memories from me. I’m a bit behind the gun with Joshua, but better late than never.

I’m not asking you to go and get a journal, just set down with pen and paper and let someone know how much you care.

(Unless you were getting me a flats boat. In that case forget the letter and go get the boat.)
