Sharing the Love
“If you want to change the world, go home and love your family.” – Mother Theresa
With Valentine’s Day now behind us, I think we can all acknowledge that expressing love to others is not a once-a-year occurrence. And although Valentine’s Day is a fun opportunity to ‘give it all we got’ to express our love, sharing that love on a daily basis can help families thrive!
Through our mission and products, red rock traditions strives to help families express daily love in the beauty of routine family life. From our I Love you Because Message Plaque to our Love Notes Bracelet, we want to encourage families everywhere to never stop sharing their love for each other.
And to keep the love alive, we asked our amazing red rock traditions Consultants family to share how they regularly express love to their family. Here are some of our favorites!
“I show my love to my family by acts of service.” – Debbie, AR
“For my husband, his love language is physical touch and quality time, so we like to cuddle up in a blanket and watch movies. He likes the undivided attention. For my son, his love language is touch and gifts. So when I am out and about, if I see something that reminds me of him, I will buy it. It doesn’t have to be a big gift. Just something to show I was thinking of him.” – Polly, GA
“Our family says ‘I love you’ to one another. I know this sounds very simplistic. However in a very busy world where our children are inundated with technology, it’s very important to us that our children have daily connection with each other and us as their parents.” – Jodi, KS
“When my kids were a little bit younger we would say back and forth as follows…
Me: I love you
Ava: I love you more
Me: I love you most
(This is where it starts getting funny….and some improper English)
Ava: I love you mostester
And we would continue going back and forth adding the end so we would end up with mostesteresterest.” – Anita, PA
“One of my favorite ways we connect and show love is through family meals. Making time to sit together and share a meal and have fun conversation. We often have people comment on how they love being with us for meals because it is not only yummy but fun, funny and filled with love.” – Karen, TX
“Something I have told my children since they were little is, ‘I will love you till the stars stop shining’. I wanted something different to say to them instead of the regular ‘I love you to the moon.’” – Aundrea, KS
“For birthdays and Anniversaries, my husband and I always show our love by handwriting a note to each other in a card. And the special thing is, somewhere in the cards we always write at least one thing the same. Whether it’s a Memory that we had or a saying that we say, somehow some way there’s always one thing that is similar. We’ve been together for 17 years. It’s kind of been a thing to always express ourselves in writing.” – Sara, KS
“I express love to my kids and grandkids by praying for them, creating gathering times/meals as often as possible, helping them remember how loved they are, with notes or small gifts, and making spontaneous memories…sometimes jumping in the pool with them with my clothes on!” – Rosemary, KY
