My mom is outside on our deck enjoying the last days of our summer and soon to be 20 degrees cooler in a couple of days and lows in the 40's. Our Autumn is soon upon us.
I asked if she wanted anything and asked for a glass of cold water which I promptly brought her. I helped her with a couple of other things, took her face in my hands and kissed her cheek and looked her in the eyes and told her "I love you, Mom."
She said, "I love you to, my sweetie." We hugged. Then I said, "Mom, I'll love you forever, even when I am dust." She replied, "Yes, I will love you too, even when I am." We both shed a few tears of love and hugged again and held hands.
I'm hoping that you too have that chance to express your love to your loved one and they are able to tell you that in return.
I'd love to hear your stories of love, please share them if you will.
My best to you--
