The Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Learn

6 Feb

One of the notes that I scribbled over and over to again to make sure I told you, is also one of the most important ones, which is why I’m posting it first:

I love you.

I don’t get to be with you every day which means I don’t see you every day, but even so I want you to know that every single second of every minute of every hour of every day, I love you. I love you to the moon and back. I love you to infinity and beyond. I don’t think they’ve determined what the biggest number in the world is, but once they do, you should know that I love you times that number. Plus one.

No matter where you go or what you do or what you say, even when you get older, even if you get mad at me, even if I make you cry or you make me cry, I love you, love you, love you forever and always. That has not changed and will never change, no matter how much distance ends up between us. I think about you all the time. I miss you every day.

And I love you, Little Man. In amounts I will never be able to quantify or measure. In ways that I might never be able to put into words. I love you. Never forget it.
