There has been an implied promise in our home that Emma would have a hand-packed lunch and a Napkin Note every day. My health circumstances last fall caused me to really look at this implied promise and make it a true commitment. I read an article last November about Alex Sheen and his social movement, “because I said I would.” I was moved to tears as I read the story and was inspired to commit to writing out Napkin Notes for Emma to carry her through high school graduation in the event that I wasn’t able to in person.
This promise doesn’t just impact Emma, it impacts me and also my relationship with God. There is strength in this promise and it inspires me to be a better father.
What will you promise today?
