I love you. Those are the sweetest words to hear, and even better, so special to feel. Love is a verb -- an action word if there ever was one. Love is something we do. But I never tire of hearing those words delivered to me ... no wrapping and fancy bow required.
The words, spoken sincerely, are powerful. They can heal a bruised soul, uplift a sagging spirit, and send a surge of warmth to every extremity. They can endear, comfort and illicit reciprocation, I love you too.
So today on Valentine's Day, I say I love you -- to my sweetheart, and also my friends and family far and near. Because it's something we all love to hear.
I love you -
say it now, say it often,
today and every day.
