My thought today is geared towards showing love to those you love- more than just on Valentine's day, a birthday or other special occasion but as often as you can.
Last year at this time, I was grieving the loss of my mother. This year the memories of that day flood my mind and I grieve the loss of a dear friend. I've yet to write a blog in her memory because I need time to form my words.
Before she died, we spent time together and always said "I Love You!" even after I was married, we shared those three words. As she became ill and eventually passed away, I remember kissing her and say "I Love You" not knowing it'd be the last time I would see her alive.
Sometimes, verbalizing "I Love You" is difficult because of the situation. For example, I have a few male friends that would not appreciate it. One of those guy things, you know. But, there are ways to show you care. Be sure and do it.
