If you found out you were not going to be in your child’s future to talk to them about life and love, what would you want to say? I remember seeing a Documentary years ago of a Mom who was dying of cancer.

It must have been the most difficult thing she had ever done in life besides say good-bye. To have the courage and mind set to sit down and gather your thoughts let alone articulate advice you are not ready to give is overwhelming to even consider.
