"If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden."
~Attributed to Claudia Gandhi
A mother's love is unconditional. It is a gift that allows us to experience the very foundation of love. WIthout it, we are lost and searching for love's meaning. Love, when learned via the unconditional love of a parent- is pure and free- and sets us up to share it with others in our lives.
As a mother, I know I love my son unconditionally. Forever. This unconditional love means that I cannot always predict my reaction or guarantee my strength, but I can guarantee that I am committed to his happiness, his growth. I will always accept him just as he is. I will always love him, deeply.
My favorite book to read to him since he was a toddler has been “I love you Forever" I can still not read it without getting teary eyed. I mean every word of it!
Happy Dia de la Madre!
