I like to let people know that I love them. I write them little notes, post on their facebook pages, spend time with them, help them out, draw pictures and post stuff on my blog, etc.
But lately I’ve been noticing that when I tell someone I love them, someone else pipes up and says, or writes, posts, etc., “I love you more!”
As a side note that doesn’t really have much to do with the point of this post, when I used to talk to my maternal grandfather (he passed away January 28th last year) we’d often play the game of love you, love you more, love you more plus one, and you know how it goes. I miss him. Love you Grandpa! (I can already hear him saying, “I love you more times infinity!” … and I’m totally fine with that.)
At first I was like, hey, where’s the love in that? But then I thought, it must be some major feat to love someone more than I do otherwise other people wouldn’t keep trying to beat me out, and I’m okay with that.
