Who Do You Love?

Every Monday in February, we are focusing on some aspect of love. After all, as the song says, Love is a many splendored thing!

I actually have two questions today:
  1. Who do you love?
  2. Do they know that you love them?

Number one is easy enough. You know who you love. However, it's often the people we love the most who question our feelings or our devotion. Many people would say "Of course So-n-So knows I love them." But, do they really?

When is the last time you came out and told them? When is the last time you did something special for someone you love?

I'm not just asking that question about romantic partners. I'm including: parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, heck, even pets! LOL!

Assuming is a dangerous habit and it's even worse when it interferes with our ability to express our feelings. If your answer to the question, "Do the people you love know you love them?" is "They should know," you're in trouble.

People only know what you tell them and what you show them and even then some people just don't get it. It takes effort on your part. You have to communicate and demonstrate. Show and tell. And the best part is that you don't have to wait for a holiday, birthday, anniversary or special occasion to show your affection.

Do it now and do it often.
