Who in the world decided that they would make three simple words carry so much weight? I ask this because these words have come to mean so much to me in the past several months. I believe that up until recently I may have used the phrase fleetingly. Maybe more of a salutation than the truly deep meaning that it holds. Letting someone know that you love them is so important and meaningful, and really should not be taken for granted. It is so important to express love to the people we care about. We all need to know that we are loved. There are few things as wonderful as being told and knowing that someone loves you. I know, for me, there is no such thing as being told too often that I am loved.
So, when the words "I Love You" come out of my mouth, it is because I have chosen to express and share that special feeling with the person/people they are directed to. It may be said in a lighthearted way, or as a farewell, but still the words are true. I feel like my heart has so much love to share, and I want to express that love to the people I care about. Mostly to my Son and Husband, I Love you! I Love you with all my heart!
