Don’t underestimate the impact of your words on another.

So, I was in my office going through some stuff and pulled out a few old photo albums to share with Aspen (Avery was gone). It was fun going through old pictures. A while back, while purging my office to make room for Aspen's bed, I ran across a ton of old letters...
