Say “I Love You” — 4 Comments

  1. Not so very long ago, a wise man said to me these words, in this order: “The problem is, you think you have time.” It’s possible he was just quoting the Buddha, so I’d think he was cool and enlightened, which I did. I’m still working to grok this in fullness but the first insight was that I should never part company with my wife, even for a few hours, without making sure that her last memory of me is that I love her because, not to be macabre, but it could be. We assume we’ll see our loved ones again when we get home because we have so many times before but most people who ever died probably thought they had more time and I’m sure all of them wished they did. So, I try never to leave angry (which can be tough because my wife and I are both fiery folk) and always make sure I tell her I love her, to have a good day and, if possible, come home safe. It’s not a complete solution but it’s a start.

  2. Great post! And so true about saying “I love you” without actually saying it. Actions really do speak louder than words, particularly in terms of household chores. Sometimes the best “I love you” is when my husband cleans the litter box — knowing that it’s actually my turn. ;D
