“Remember, people can love one another and never see each other. They can not live together, not talk, not be a part of one another’s lives… and still love one another very much. Love is something that we give freely. No expectations. Love is just… love.” This is what I told my daughter last night as tears streamed down both our cheeks.
Our conversation moved from topic to topic before I brought it back to the original, just to impress the idea of love knowing no restrictions in her mind. I continued, “Love is…”
She interrupted “I know, I know. Love is unconditional and we give it without ever expecting anything in return.”
I had to smile. Have I brainwashed my daughter or what!
