LOVE: First four letter word of Parenting. It encompasses every feeling and thought you have ever felt. It is peacefulness, joy, radiance, overwhelming feelings of protection that are born so deep within, its origin is a mystery but it lies somewhere inside your children’s eyes, a recognition from one soul to the other akin a familiarity transcending our realm of reality and what we know as our universe, invisible yet palpable chords that are struck with every smile or soft caress or just the indescribable contentment a mother feels while holding said offspring. Or something like that.
Parenting begins with LOVE… all other four-letter words just make for good writing! 😉
