I said, "Oh yeah, what's the other one?" thinking she was going to toss out the thank you magic word. But, to my surprise she says, "I Love You. That's a magic word too mommy, did you know that?"
Very quickly I said, "Yes Honey, you're right. I love you is a magic word" just sort of playing along with her. But, after I dropped the kids off at school and had the peace and quiet of an empty car I really started to think about I Love You as being one of the magic words.
The bible says, "God is Love." Almost every self-help or metaphysical book I read says you need to love yourself, you need to send love to others (even those who have hurt you). Some teachers will tell you to see things through the Eyes of God, which if I'm understanding correctly means seeing them with Love (as opposed to fear). So after contemplating this for the entire 20 minute drive home (and many more hours after that), I really do think my six year old daughter was correct in telling me that there is another magic word... and it's I Love You!
Until Next Time..
