In the last three days I have made a mental effort to watch my actions and see how many times I profess my love to those around me and how often I actually put it into action (practice.) Well, what I know is, it's much easier to throw out the phrase "I love you" and keep on moving, truly without even a thought to what I've just said. This scenario was much more prevalent with my man than anyone else.
"I love you" - mindlessly as I leave the house with a peck (didn't we just talk about laying one on him and lingering in a kiss...how quickly I forget!?)
"I love you" - as I end a phone call....the words are almost cut off by my hangup because I was already onto the next thing on my agenda
"I love you" - as we lay down exhausted from a long day....with barely a thought before I doze off
Hmmm I wish I could tell you the tally of my actions depicted what I really think....that he is the man of my dreams, the man that really does make my world complete, the guy I dream of growing old with but my guess is my hurried, professed "I love you" isn't screaming this!
This week I encourage you to stop your fast-paced life and really practice the art of loving those around you so they know when you say "I love you," they leave the moment knowing it to be true.
