I don't know how many of you have kids but even as they grow into adults, they can cause our hearts to wonder why it feels like it does. Our teaching power is gone now, all we can do is watch them grow and learn as we have...by our mistakes. A mothers love is unconditional. Our love is powerful. Do our children know or realize that? You would think our kids know that we make mistakes too. I don't think our children's love for us is unconditional until they are much, much older. I posted a photo of the ocean because it is soothing for me and i need that now.
