I remember the night I came home and my wife started our dinner conversation with that question. I immediately thought of our circle of friends wondering which one of them had received the happy news. I wasn’t prepared for what she said next. With a huge smile on her face she said “US.” What? Who? When? Oh my!! I was shocked, then I was over joyed. This is what we had always wanted. It was really happening. What a blessing.
The next day, sitting at work I began to think about all the things we would have to do to be ready for the baby to arrive. I started building a to do list. You can imagine how it went: paint the baby’s room, get a crib, buy baby toys, buy baby clothes, buy life insurance.
Wait, what? Where did that last item come from? What new dad puts buy life insurance on his new baby to do list? I did, and here’s why. I have seen too many times the tragedy that visits a family when something tragic happens and mom or dad are taken from the family. While we are young we feel invincible, but none of us can predict the day or hour of our death. Its not something that we keep at the top of our mind, but it should be in our mind and it should be in our preparations.
Life Insurance is a gift of LOVE! It is one among many ways to show the people who matter in our lives how much they matter to us. As we approach Valentines Day this year and millions of men and women consider what gifts to give to their romantic partners, consider this.
