Say It Now — Featured in the New York Times
We never know how much time we have left with the people we love. If there's someone you care about deeply—a parent, grandparent, child, friend, colleague, teacher, or neighbor—don’t wait to express how you feel. Say it now.
In Say It Now, Sherry Richert Belul offers 33 creative ways to say “I love you” to the most important people in your life—through words, actions, and meaningful gifts.
Sherry shares classic ideas (writing a list of “10 reasons why you’re amazing”), thoughtful ideas (driving your friend to their divorce hearing so they don’t have to go alone), zany ideas (a bubble flash mob in the park), simple projects (filling a glass jar with compliments for a friend), and quick projects that take thirty seconds or less (recording a video message to cheer up a sick relative who’s recuperating at home). You don’t need to be an “artist” or a “crafty person” in order to follow Sherry’s instructions—and you don’t need tons of time, either. Most of her suggestions require nothing more than some paper, a pen, and a couple of minutes. Sherry reminds readers that the greatest gift of all is simply a few moments of your undivided attention.
In addition to dozens of gift-making and letter-writing ideas, Say It Now includes moving stories that will bring readers to tears—stories about the importance of appreciating each day and never taking it for granted.
Say It Now will inspire readers to hug their kids tightly, call their mom for a long overdue chat, whip together a handmade gift, and say the words that need to be said.
