I See... How to Hear “I Love You!”

It's easy to say “I love you.” For example- I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. There- I just said it several times in under a few seconds. It's much harder, however, to HEAR “I love you.” After all, based on my favorite quote fm Elder Oaks, “What you hear is more important than what I say,” developing the ability to hear “I love you” is paramount

I have to admit I'm pretty proud about my amazing ability to hear “I love you.” For example, below is just a sample of a few instances where my wife may have said one thing, but I was able to hear another: ”I love you:”

“Drive safely!”

“Have a great day at work!”

“Thank you for locking the door.”

“You've worked hard today; you should be able to sit on your butt, eat popcorn, and watch TV if you want to.”

“You must be tired; do you want me to drive?”

“You are a fathead (pronounced fahhey)!”

You did a good job of cleaning the kitchen!”

“Honey, let me trim your hair.”

“We miss you! Hurry home!”

“Let's go shopping for a Kindle Fire.”

“We ordered General Tsao's chicken; I know it's your favorite.”

“Where would you like to eat for lunch?”

“I'm sorry you had a tough day at work. Welcome home!”

'You need to get to bed earlier; let me put your clothes away for you”

“Thanks for cleaning the catbox! You know how much I hate it... “

What have you heard lately?
