I know a couple that, for years, has used an acronym to remind themselves of their love for one another. This code word shows up on notes, at the end of letters, and even on a brass puzzle-shaped key chain each of them carries, the two pieces of which join to make one. The acronym they use is “BARILY,” which means “Babe Always Remember I Love You.”
Over time, this couple’s three children broke the code. So when this acronym occasionally pops up here and there, it’s a reminder to these kids that their parents keep connected in their own special way. It’s amazing how a six-letter word that can’t be found in any dictionary can have so much meaning.
