If It Matters

Last Thursday morning, Valentine’s Day, at about 7am as I dropped her off at school, my nearly 13-year-old, absolutely-adolescent, totally-teenage, Taylor-Swift-adoring, yell-at-her-sister, too-cool-for-school daughter Hayle got out of the car.

Happy Valentines Day

Before shutting the door, she paused then said,

“Dad, if it matters, I love you, too.”

The words lingered in the air for just a moment, but they’ll linger in my heart forever.

Forget “If.”

It matters.


Today’s gift of time … Lunch with my other daughter Tessa on President’s Day. Just a lunch, but it mattered.

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
