Unconditional Love


Since it is Valentines Weekend, I have been having thoughts about 'unconditional love'. To me it is the greatest love. It is love without strings attached. I just spoke about this to my brother and sister the other day. One of my dearest aunts taught me unconditional love. It is what she lived every day of her life and showered upon all of us. We were all so special to her that we thought it was directed to us individually. Not until later in life did I see that she had this love for all her nieces and nephews, friends and family. No one got by her without this love. Her "eyes lit up" every time she saw us. She has since passed on and I keep her picture of the two of us near me to look at each day. That picture shows the unconditional love she had for me and I for her. No money on earth could ever buy that feeling. I strive to show unconditional love to my family. I want them always to see my eyes light up when they walk into a room.

Sweet Southern sister, those are magical words and a dear reminder to me. It's almost like you wrote that "just for me." I am off to talk to my beloved nieces and nephews now.
Hugs!
