When I tell my children that I love them I get a variety of reactions. Often I get no response from them, as they continue with their play. Sometimes I get a little smile. And sometimes I get an “I love you too!” back from them.
Today I got the best response.
I told my daughter that I love her and she said, “I know.”
That is my ultimate goal in mothering: That my children will know every day, their whole lives long, that their mother loves them completely, without reservation, without condition, and without fail.
