Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Can you explain unconditional love?

IMG_2625 2She is never hungry, always clean, and never lost, she feels loved always. How can that be? Maybe she’s special like a princess or has some magical guardian angel, maybe she does something really great to deserve such a comfortable life. Maybe… but then perhaps it is something else entirely. Perhaps there is someone who loves her for no special reason at all, perhaps she is a daughter and has a mother with unconditional love. Perhaps that’s true but “why then” she asks, “are there children who go to bed at night with an ache in their empty tummy or a cry that nobody hears?”  

Can we explain the difference between this little girl and the girl who cries alone or feels unloved? Doesn’t every child deserve to be loved?

“Honey we all deserve to be loved!” Says the lady who dreams too much (that’s me).

I want to wish you all a very happy Mother’s Day but I would like to dedicate this post to the children who go without the unconditional love of a Mother. I will be spending the weekend in the woods with family. I’ll see you on Monday when I’ll pass along a very special award that was given to me, stay tuned.

Enjoy this day and every day. You deserve it, we all do!

  1. How sweet! I had forgotten about “Water Babies”. Is this by chance you? Yes, every child should be loved unconditionally…even the “difficult” ones. Children are our sandpaper…some parents get a very fine grade that just shines them up; others get the heavy duty type, taking off layers and layers, reducing the parent to love. I was blessed with one of each. Happy weekend! **blows kisses** Deborah
