    My niece who lost two sisters and her father in a time span of a few months, her mother (my sister) died some time ago. Without being intrusive, I want her to know she is not alone and she is loved.

    Myself. Pandemic stress has been affecting my sleep and body in bad ways. In the past, I’d take out my frustrations on myself, which just increased my suffering. So, I’ve been exercising some softness and self-kindness.

    This early morning I drove my youngest to his first day on the job. I told him I loved and wished him success on his first day.

    I have expressed my love to my dearest ones, including to those that I am not able (distance) to do it in person.

    I have expressed love to my husband of 26 years, we have started connecting on a different level the past year. I have expressed love to the children I teach on a daily basis. I need to do much more expressing than I do. I need to express love daily to coworkers, strangers everyone I come in contact with. Sometimes it is hard to show love to others, I just need to find peace within me and show love no matter the circumstance or situation.

    My dad has been in the hospital for months now, in and out of isolation as there are Covid outbreaks in the unit. When he is in isolation, the only contact I have with him is by phone, and as his hearing is weak, conversation is often difficult. Yet he never fails to hear my “I love you Dad”, and responds with a deep warmth in his voice, “I love you too.” I treasure our conversation and shared expressions of love today. In the future, when he is gone, I know these heart expressions of love will reverberate within me, as constant as the ongoing sound of a singing bowl, remembered.

At some future time, when he is gone from earth, I know these spoken words will reverberate inside, continuous as a singing bowl, love sounding through time, remembered.

    Rather than constantly saying i love you To my spouse i show her my compassion and understanding of her personal difficulties and times she’s experiencing. By lending an ear and letting her work on things without me interjecting my thoughts.i used to tell her I love you frequently but I realized that I was saying it because of my own insecurities. I expressed love to myself by giving self praise, positive affirmations.

    A standing joke between me and my 21 year old son. I say ‘I love you’. He replies ‘thank you’. Too funny! But then when he walks past me, he pats me on the head and says ‘love you mom’.

    I tell my husband I love him all the time as well and he replies ‘talk is cheap’.!! It doesn’t stop me from talking and saying it though :-). And while he is a man of few words he shows me his love everyday by his actions and by always putting me first. Truly blessed to have a wonderful selfless man by my side.

    To the stars, to the moon, to the sun, to the ethers. We are on a PLANET in the galaxy. How did we get here? It’s so vast and beyond. I express my love to the planet. And the animals. And us. ALL OF US. How wild! How amazing!

    I make sure I express my love to my little boy every day. It’s an easy task to do because he absolutely makes my heart burst. 😍

    I say I love you to my husband many times a day. During this difficult time of Covid, he is a steady presence, and helps me stay calmer than I would be otherwise. He is a gem.

    Sometimes expressing it in words, sometimes in deeds, sometimes silently in heart´s vibes, expressing it towards my dear friends here through calling, listening carefully to each other, cooking together or be there for another when ill, visiting; to my dear friend Sabine, a treasure of a friend, speaking with each other almost every week via phone or ZOOM,for just exchanging our life´s up´s and down´s as well as sharing professionals. She is such a dear one, kindly offering both her ear and heartfelt advice; to suffering kids in my care.

    My daughter! And it has been wonderful. We introduced her dog to my guinea pig. Her dog, rescued from Tijuana, goes berserk over squirrels, and of course he went berserk over my guinea pig, too, who sat, oblivious to the dog, eating in her well secured cage.
