Roses are red
Violets are blue
I promise each day
To say I love you
There are few words in the English language that convey such emotion as the simple, four-letter word love.
Just thinking of the word love makes you feel warm all over, giddy inside, happy and fulfilled.
I made a vow when I was quite young to tell the people I love that I love them every day. You see, when I was 12, my Mom was diagnosed with cancer. I knew the day would come when I might not be able to say those words to her anymore, so we made a pact to say we loved each other every day. She died when I was 19.
I’ve continued that daily ritual in my marriage and with my children. Not a day goes by where I don’t tell them I love them.
If there’s one thing this past year has taught us is, life is short. This week’s #HappyAct is to make sure the people you love know how you feel about them. Don’t leave words unsaid.
Happy hearts day, everyone. And for those of you with a more amorous turn who like a play on words, feel free to make love a daily ritual too!
