Almost every morning, I take a moment to give Luca a hug and say, "Have fun, be gentle, and listen." It seems, on those days I miss this moment, like Luca has a rough day. On those days, I realize the impact that small things like a repeated bit of advice to a child can have on an entire day. And the hug makes a difference too. But this advice is really good for anyone, and I strive to live up to it too. So today, make some time to slow down, have a bit of fun, listen to someone carefully, and be gentle in all you do.
