Communicating love

I’ve been thinking about how we communicate love, and what we’ve learned these past few months. I had a thought, as I was making these little bites for company the other night, how many of us are back to our busy schedules, forgetting about the people we so needed and enjoyed talking to only a month ago?

Pick up the phone and call!

It’s so easy for us to feel loving, warm thoughts toward our friends and the people in our lives.

How many times do we think about … I really should call, or I really need to get in touch with this person? Hand raised.

Just today I made myself go to the phone and call two friends, and then sit down and email another two. Long past due.

We think about these lovely people, and we see their pictures all over Facebook, like right now … first day of summer pictures are making me smile.

It’s great to see what people are doing and how they are enjoying their families.

Make a simple invite

But how do they know we are feeling connected to them? There are no Facebook vibes that we can feel. Only a quick “like,” if we even have time to do that.

So it’s time to make a plate of poppers and invite some people over!

Look people in the eye, share stories, tell them you love them … it’s all so important and real and what we crave.

Come back and tell me if you made this simple recipe. Tell me who you shared it with.

At the end of the day, we will never know how much we love each other unless we tell it …

Yes, a quick text is fine, too. Just do it.
