It doesn’t matter how much you love your kids. What matters is communicating that love in a way that they can understand and feel that love.
I love my child with everything in me, she is such a joy to our life! But does she know how much I love her? Even at a small age, I try to make sure she understands how much I love her and will always be there for her.
This statement spoke so much truth to me. The same is true for friendships, marriages, and all relationships. It is so easy for me to think those warm loving thoughts about my child, friends, and family… and then go about my day, never reaching out to tell them. I think of them all day, I pray for them, see lovely pictures and daily post about them on Facebook and feel connected. But how on earth would they know?
I am trying to make more of a point to say, “I love you, I am thankful for you, or go on a coffee date with a friend.” Understanding each others love language when expressing how much they mean to you, so you can better communicate that love to them.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
What can you do today, this week, this month, to let your loved ones know how you feel?
