I had to Learn to Say, ‘I Love You.
Not hearing those words growing up, they didn’t come easily to me.
It wasn’t until I was 17 and visiting my sister that I witnessed saying ‘I Love You’ comes easily and naturally between family members.
I remember the day Mom and I were leaving to head back home. ‘I Love You’ wanted to come out of my mouth, but it was then that I realized it needed to come out of my heart.
In today’s society, I believe we’ve grown and left the Victorian era of staid emotional display.
Today, ‘Love you’ is heard between many family members and friends.
May I make a suggestion? Please add the ‘I’ to make it more personal and heartfelt.
And at bedtime when you meet with your children for prayers and blessings ask them, “How have I shown you today that I Love You?”
