Three little words - I love you!
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.
