Love is a Verb

"I love you!", she enthused.  How very easy it is to say those words.  But, as the song goes - & as life bears out - "love is a verb".  Likewise, "actions speak louder than words".  It's not enough to tell someone that you love them.  You have to back that up - or even precede the words - with actions that demonstrate love.  When someone you know is sick, bring them a meal or offer to clean the house or pick up prescriptions for them.  If someone's car breaks down, lend them your own or arrange to drive them around.  If someone they love has died, drop by to visit them or call them so they can cry on your shoulder or hug them when you see them out & about.  Give feet to your words, & when you say, "I love you!", it'll be believable.
