[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oo_E1_sYR_s&w=560&h=315] As someone that relishes being a parent, it hits me time-and-time again how much there isn't anything I wouldn't do for my children; and also how much a hug from them can completely melt away the worst of days. They give their love so freely, and I am blessed to be the recipient of it. It is a gift I give thanks for each and every day, and one I treasure to my very core.
When we give love abundantly and with concern for the other before ourselves, I believe we ultimately receive in ways greater than we ever would have had we remained focused on our own needs or matters of self-imposed importance.
Such is the Truth in the touching little video above -
With Mother's Day coming up, and Father's Day a few weeks away, my hope is that you have felt that kind of love from a parent on your journey. If you are a parent now yourself, I likewise hope that you let your children know they are loved beyond all things. It will make a difference in their lives...and yours.
Hugs for everybody!!!
Peace, Shawn :-)
