Three little words - I love you!

I awoke Monday with the sun streaming through the white lace curtains in my bedroom, and I arose to greet the morning with an obligatory cup of coffee. Seated at my home office desk, I donned my headphones and pressed play to begin my favorite compiled Soundcloud playlist, BTS-mellow side. Only Fools (performed by Jungkook and Namjoon) flowed into my ears, and utter bliss infiltrated my senses. My day was off to a perfect start.

What followed was a series of work related events: editing a client's book, updating two local news and events guides, and sorting through a multitude of email and text messages. Interspersed throughout the day were several phone calls from old friends and two family members. While our chats were pleasant, what made them particularly endearing was the way they each ended. "I love you" they chimed. "I love you too," I repeated.

Those words weren't rote or coerced, but heartfelt utterances and they made me stop and think how grateful I am for everything I have, including all the wonderful relationships in my life.

So,when's the last time you said "I love you" to someone you cherish? It might not change the world, but it will brighten their day.

It's something we never say enough.
