Unconditional Love


unconditional love


Is unconditional love from the heart or from pure sight of our children? What does it look like? How does it feel? What does it mean?

Webster’s Dictionary gives us a word-based definition of unconditional love. The dictionary defines each word separately: Unconditional means “not limited in any way,” while love is “a strong feeling of constant affection.”

A mother’s definition of this love can range from one meaning to many different ones, depending who you might ask. The realistic meaning is based on a mother’s experience and knowledge of this pure feeling of love. It can be defined in a picture, through a mother’s eyes, through gestures, or through any other unique symbolic definition that fits each and every mother. These moments can be those tiring nights when the little one can’t sleep, but we stay with them until they do fall asleep. It can be the moment our child sees us walking towards them in school.  It can be the moment we walk in the door from work.  The moments when we feel unconditional love are the best feelings in our hearts. At times we can begin to think to ourselves “Can my heart sustain so much love?”  The answer is ” Yes.” Yes, our hearts are made to hold unconditional love for our babies.

Unconditional LOVE

Unconditional love varies from mom to mom. It may be the moment you knew you were pregnant or the moment you gave birth. Either way, we all have the undying, unconditional love for our children.

This love becomes whole when we realize how strong of a hold it takes on us when we have children. As some of us mommies say “my children are my heart and soul,” which are the places where we hold our unconditional love for them.

This love can only be seen in the eyes of the person who holds the unconditional love. We only begin to see it in others when we truly understand what it is and how it feels.

Unconditional love isn’t a social entity, but a way of life that keeps harmony, respect, and connecting to others special.

How do you feel when unconditional love takes a hold of your heart?

Reflecting on the many blessings I have I can say that I'm fortunate to be in God's favor. I have two beautiful daughters that have brought a change of life to our home. My husband and I have known each other since we met in the fifth grade. We call ourselves elementary sweet hearts. Our lives have brought us together in ways we never imagined. Living life together has made the journey easier and well worth the memories we share. Currently, I am a second grade teacher and I hold a bachelors in sociology and a masters in education administration. As an educator, I have become an advocate for children and teachers. Believing in others that they can achieve anything they set their minds on helps them succeed. People today need to be compassionate about what they do for a living and that's me-I am a compassionate, strong willed woman who will aim high in achieving success and helping others achieve their own goals.
