"I Love You", this week's entry in the Velvet Verbosity 100 Word Challenge, found here.
I love you.
A promise, isn't it?
“Love is when the welfare of another is indispensable to one's own,” Heinlein wrote.
Good definition. I quote it a lot.
I've said I love you. To 1 day old infants, to 90 year old women. To people I haven't seen in decades, to people I see every single day.
I always mean it.
I don't always feel worthy to make such a promise. I don't always feel I can do it-protect their interests and forget my own. I'm not sure I can do it.
But I say it. I say it.
