We live in a world that seems to have everything. And yet, we don’t always feel that way. So here’s a question to ask those you love: “What is the one thing that I can do for you that would help you over the next three years?”
If you could grant a wish to the ones you love, those who are most special and closest to you, what would they ask of you? How could you help their lives be better and easier? What would they say?
And the next question is, would you grant their wish?
That is the true test of love: The offer of giving, and then the gift.
