I didn't know what unconditional, complete surrender love for another human being was until I had children. It is a love that often brings tears to my eyes.
There are the bittersweet tears that happen when I think about our oldest going off on his own soon.
Tears of sadness flow when one of our children experience hurt in their own lives.
Sometimes the tears are because of extreme gratitude for being given these amazing gifts.
Tears of happiness come when I watch a child accomplish something they have been striving for - reading their first words, hitting a home run, or nailing a song during a theatrical performance.
Some days there are tears of frustration - disappointment in myself for not reacting and responding to my children the way that I should.
Lately, there have been many episodes of tears of awe and wonderment when I simply look at Emmy and the amazing miracle that she is.
Blessings to you for a weekend full of love,
