One would think I would talk about being thankful today

After all, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in the US.

And, I am very thankful. In fact, every night for years I write down at least 3 things I’m grateful for from the day.

I hope you are extremely thankful, too.

But, I figured you received enough ‘Thanksgiving’ newsletters this week.

I want to talk to you about 3 words. Just 3 words

I. Love. You..

Can there be any more powerful words than those? Do you say them enough? Do you hear them enough?

I grew up with parents from the World War II and Great Depression era. They rarely said “I love you.” In fact, my dad never did. I think this may have been common among that generation.alex-love-you

When we started having a family I made a vow to myself that I would tell my children how much I loved them any chance I got. And, I did and I do to this day even though they are all adults.

Personally, I don’t think we can say it enough or hear those words enough.

I feel so fortunate that near the end of my dad’s life he started telling me he loved me and it was music to my ears!

Now, my 92-year-young mom says it to me continually.

Now I get to hear it from my grandchildren. Click the play button on the photo to hear my precious Alexander tell me.  I want to hug the stuffing out of him every time I hear it!

As you enter this wonderful holiday season with Thanksgiving and Christmas let’s enter it with a feeling of love and appreciation. Not just on the actual holiday but every day in between.

Who needs to hear “I love you” from you today?

This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you. This is the very best way to love. John 15:9 The Message
