There are about a million ways to say those three words “I Love You.”
Have you eaten?
Grab a coat.
These are some of the ways it’s said in my house. There are others, not as obvious, but we all know them when we hear them.
And it’s not just that way with lovers and spouses, we do it with friends and family too.
How are you? Really?
Let me know when you get home.
Let me buy you lunch.
Because you’re family
i’m glad you are in my village.
It’s been rocky for my family the last 3 weeks. i’ve heard, or said, everything i just listed.
i can’t begin to tell you how important it is to say those things. They are life changing, life affirming phrases. They can restore faith, hope, and bolster love.
i know that there are other ways to show love. We see those around us too. A simple hug, fixing a favorite meal, offering a ride to where you need to be, talking with someone in a PM, or by email. i’ve been on the receiving end of many of those during this rough patch as well. The simple act of reaching out was a show of caring, and it mattered.
How do you show love; how do you say “I love you” without saying it? No matter how you do it, don’t forget to show and tell people you love them.
