than the strongest memory." --Chinese Proverb
She is unforgettable, so it’s not about remembering. I could never forget her or her love for me. She spoke it and she showed it. I knew it when she was alive and I know it now, nearly 14 years after her relocation to Heaven.
I can’t give her a gift today. But true to form, she continues giving them to me.
A small set of reference books, given to me by Mom years ago, sits on my desk even as I type these words. The books themselves are of little value. From the outside you couldn’t imagine the treasure within. You have to open the thesaurus to discover it.
I am confident that you say, “I love you” to those you love. There’s no doubt in my mind that you also show it by your loving actions. Don’t stop.
But today I am asking you to write your love. Perhaps you’ll write it inside the cover of a special book, or in a card, or on a strategically placed post-it note. I don’t care where you write your love. Use a napkin if you have to.
But write it. Write it today. And write it in ink.

“My dear, dear friends! I love you so much. I do want the very best for you. You make me feel such joy, fill me with such pride….” Philippians 4:1 (MSG)
