Use Words

In a Wedding Film I recently completed, the Father of the Bride said this during the toast at the reception:

“Some of you knew my Dad. He was a great man. He helped support and raise 8 kids, but had difficulty expressing his feelings to his children. We knew he loved us, but the words just weren’t there. 
So, to my daughter, on your day, I want you to hear my words:
I love you, and I am so proud of you.”

If you love someone, make sure they know it. Use words.
