The Power Of "I Love You"

Oct 28th
I received an eemail earlier this week that really hit me. A dear friend, who lost his wife a couple years ago, has been a consistent reader and supporter of my blog. He told me he loved that I wrote about anything and everything, and doing so made him think about a lot of things in his life. He said “your blog makes me think about things I never share and wish I could have.” This is a reference to his beloved late wife. He always had me check out the lyrics to “Always On My Mind.” Here they are….
Maybe I didn’t love you
Quite as often as I could have
Maybe I didn’t treat you
Quite as good as I should have

If I made you feel second best
Girl I’m sorry I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I’m so happy that you’re mine

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me
Tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
And give me
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
I’ll keep you satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

My dear friend contemplated if there were times he could have shown his wife he loved her more or times when he could’ve said or done something different. SOO I have been inspired to be even more open and loving in my relationship. Of course everyone isn’t perfect and you are going to have you rough patches, but I think it is so important to always tell each other “I love you”. Turn off the TV one night and just talk. Don’t take your phones to dinner. Go on a walk at the end of the day. With electronics and media EVERYWHERE it’s so easy to get into a routine and not communicate. Try it out….
