Love is an action word

For most people the phrase “I love you,” gets used multiple times per day. But how often do we show those around us how much we treasure them? Love is an action word designed to show our loved ones how much they mean in our lives. It is not complicated, nor does it require big actions. In fact, it is the small things that connect us.

Something as simple as a hug that is a little longer and tighter will convey how you feel. Or maybe a kiss that is lengthier instead of a quick peck as you run out the door. You could even reach over and grab their hand while you sit and watch TV at night. Or maybe send them a brief text or two during the day letting your loved one see you are thinking about them. The point is, you can let those around you know how much they mean to you by showing them.

Our time together on earth is short. So take a moment to show your family and friends how significant they are. Saying “I love you” is still meaningful, but showing them connects us on a much deeper level.
