A Love Like That

The Sun never says
To the Earth
'You Owe Me.'

I've loved this quote from the first time I read it. It must have been years ago, I really can't remember. It stuck in my mind. I love it so much I even customized it to hang up in my daughter's room. This speaks to me on a deeper level. Can you imagine a love where you give and give and never expect anything in return? I try and have a love like that with my husband. I don't always succeed. But I have learned that if I give to him he gives back to me. I do have a love like that with my daughter. It's easy right now because she's only 2 1/2 months old. I can't expect anything back from her. But I hope as she grows older I'll continue to give her this unconditional love, never expecting anything in return. Maybe I can be an example to her. Maybe I can teach her that the more love you give the more love you receive. I hope I can show her that a love like that lights the whole room, and perhaps the whole sky.
