I remember the radio legend Paul Harvey telling his audience about a man who expressed love in a most memorable way – a way we might want to emulate and a way I shall never forget.
Often the words “I love you” are empty or hard to say for some people.
But Harvey shared a stellar example of how to communicate this powerful emotion without getting caught up in what sometimes becomes a trite phrase.
As I remember it, Paul Harvey told the story of this husband who put a note in the glove compartment of his wife’s car right next to the insurance card and the owner’s card.
She probably would never see it – unless …
On it, he wrote her a note that said he was so sorry that she had to be in an accident, and that she was not to worry how he would feel about the damage to the car. After all, she was fine and that is all that mattered.
Imagine opening the glove compartment of your car in a stressful situation like an auto accident to read the premeditated reassurance from a loved one that the most important cargo is you and not the mangled metal.
Steven King says:
“The most important things are the hardest to say, because words diminish them”.
Here are 10 more ways to say “I Love You” without saying it.
And if you love these daily emails, would you silently forward them to a friend?
