The commercial gets me every time; I’ve been a sucker for Hallmark commercials my whole life and each one continues to trigger my waterworks no matter how many times I watch. You’ve surely seen the current one by now; it features children, men, women, all sharing the secret message they want to hear from their loved ones. Every sentiment is one I would want to hear too.
But the question that whispers to my heart throughout the commercial is this: What is the one thing I really want to hear – and not just hear, but know will come true?
I’ve been thinking about it now for a little while, and I think I know what is mine. But this is the kind of message one doesn’t just hope for; these secrets of the heart need light of day and breath of shared spirits to live and come true.
And I am paying attention now.
listening for what you want to hear from me….
