Everyone of us has its own family. A family where we have grown. A family where we start to feel the love. But is it enough to just feel it? Don't you think that it is also important to say and express it? The parents, they do say "I Love You" to their children mostly when they are asleep. Wherein the children do not hear the words. The children, they just say "I Love You" to their parents if the parents are sometimes sick or too old enough to grasp it. Why this words are the least among the words that we say to our family? How about you, how often do you say "I Love You" to your family? or to the person you love?

I tell the person and people I love all the time. Why? Because tomorrow is not promised to no one. A person can be here today and gone tomorrow. It is important to tell that person how you really feel about them. I say I love you to my child when she is away and when she is sleep. I tell my family and friends I love them all the time. Even people I do not know, because you never know what that person needs to hear at that time. You do not know if that person feels unwanted or that no one loves them. You can change that person lifes. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ and should love one another as you love yourself.

It is really a great feeling to say "I Love you" to the person we love. I think, one must express it when one's mind triggers him/her to do so. I think expressing it honestly is the best way one can intend to show his feelings for the person he or she loves. For example, I always say to my mother and my father that I love them the most because they are like God to me. Moreover, I think my parents are the greatest persons on this world because there is always a lot to learn from them. However, there are many people who are shy and do not explicitly express their emotions or feelings to other people. But I think every person has feelings in one's heart and one must not hide their feelings and should be willing to say "I Love you" to the person he or she loves. For example, one of my friends thinks that there is no need at all to say "I love you" to the parents because it is the basic duty or responsibility of the parents to take care of their children and they are not doing any favor on their children. So people start ignoring their sacrifices and forget to say "I love you" to parents. This is very wrong and should not happen with anyone. Nevertheless, I support all persons who willingly say "I love you" to any person they feel like saying so...

The last time I said I Love You to the people that I love are a long time ago although I say I love You to my Dad every night and my mom every chance I get. It's important that we let the people we know how much we love them, not just in action but also in words. Sometimes I tell my friends how important and how much I love them too.

To my family, i remember that i said i love you to my mom about 9 years ago in her birthday. As a son, actually i don't really need the words because i do know that my parents love me. I don't know wether they need the words or not. I think they don't need the hear it either because they already know that i love them. To my girlfriend, i tell her that i love her every night. She's in distance. So, i say 'i love you' everyday to convince her that though we're separated, i still love her.

I have to admit that when we were kids, we would blush first and whisper 'I love yous' to our parents and run! Now, my siblings and I have grown accustomed to saying I love you to our parent and to each other also. I think I must have read it or watched it but I do not want to lose that moment where I have said what I feel inside my heart - and that is the love that I have for that person - it could be my friend, my parents, my husband or my siblings. Also, after saying it, there's this unexplainable feeling that makes you giddy!

As far as saying it to the person I love, I usually try to just say it when I feel it. That way it does not become just a habit, but it is because I am feeling it when I say it. The last time I said it was yesterday. However, there are some days when my emotions are feeling strong, so I may say it more than once a day. As for my mother, I usually say it when I talk to her on the phone. It is usually once a week. She usually tells me I love you, and if I don't say it back, I am afraid that she will feel hurt. I do have friends that I say I love you to from time to time. They are really close friends that I have known for years. For some of them, I guess we say it to support each other. Others will say it when we are getting ready to part and they just feel it I guess. And I think it is always proper to return the gesture, that is unless it is someone that you really don't care about. You definitely wouldn't want to lead someone on by saying it when you don't really feel that way.

Ever day several times a day usually. My spouse, my kids we always are frequent and sincere with telling each other that we love them. Parents, grandparents and brothers and sisters - I always end a conversation, email or phone call with I love you. And I mean it! I love them all and want them to know. I think it's also very important to be "nice" to your close family. We tell each other please and thank you and other niceties. If we can't use good manners and be nice to our immediate family then we will never use them in public.

well pointed out.many a times we just forget to express love to those whom we love the most.whereas those magical words can brigthen up their faces and give you that eternal satisfaction you keep on longing for.i too am sometimes so engrossed in my own world to tell my loved ones how much i love them even if they are always in my mind.but i think i will make conscious effort to do so frequent enough..because i do so.they mean a world to me.thanks for reminding....god bless you
