During sunday service, on November 13th 2011:
Pastor wayne baxter: parents, tell your children that you love them verbally. Research has often shown that parents who do not tell their children that they are loved are more prone to: be sexually promiscuous (among a list of other things).
then my father turns to me, and in a very loud whisper says:
Father: sandra, LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU!.
not that he didnt say it often before, but now he says it three times. everytime. i think i feel it working LOL.
