In the continuing interest of pretending to be relevant.

"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.


  1. Don't we all. And mean it. Well done, Michael.

  2. An admirable endeavor. This is why it is hard for me to say those three words until I truly believe I can be worthy.

    Well written...

  3. Actions are the canvas, but the words paint color into Life and Love.

    Well said, Michael.
