Real Parents

I posted this as my Facebook status the other day, but today I really feel as if this needs a much larger audience.

If you have a child, no matter how old they are, tell them today how much you love them.  I'm giving Olivia every bit of extra love I can.  I feel so blessed to know that both David and I love her more than anything in the world and will ALWAYS support her, cherish her, and put her needs before our own.

Real parents think about their children day and night - even when they are grown.  Parents love their children in a way that no one will ever understand.  Parents will be there for their children when no one else will.  Parents will listen to their children and will be there to pick them back up when they fall or make mistakes.  Parents would take a bullet, stand in front of a train, and ask God to take them instead of their child.  Real parents LOVE unconditionally and eternally.

I was blessed with having wonderful, loving parents and grandparents, so it's hard for me to believe there are parents out there that do NOT put their children first and who do NOT love their children unconditionally. I thank God daily for you and David and how you are raising Olivia in a home so full of LOVE.

No doubt Olivia is a loved child ... as it should be. Lucky little angel!
