Saying It

When was the last time you said, “I love you.” to your child or a loved one?

The other day when I was walking into a kitchen gadget boutique, I immediately took in the layout of the store. I saw pots, napkins, pepper mills, fancy spoons, and no customers. It was eerily quiet. I directed my attention to a cookbook when I heard, “I love you grandma.” Looking in the direction of what I heard, I saw a five-year old child gazing face-to-face at her grandmother. They were behind the counter ready to wait on the next customer. Within an instant, the reply from grandmother to child was returned, “I love you, too, sweetheart.”

The next time the opportunity presents itself, let someone you love know how you feel by saying it, “I love you.”
