Unconditional Love

My children have all been my teachers at some time or another when it comes to the idea of unconditional love.

Today's instructor: Kenna.

The lesson plan: Today's lesson begins by handing Mommy pieces of chewed-up plum skin (which she accepts, since we are upstairs with no trash can in sight at the moment), followed by a snuggle session on Mommy's lap while she works on typing out Day 2 of the Commission Bible study. During this endearing moment, Kenna strategically leans forward and wipes her nose on my arm.

THAT, my friends, is a child secure in her mother's love. And now, if you'll pardon me, I need to go find a tissue to wipe off my arm...

I often have love all over my pants, shirts, and occassionally the back part of my arm that I cannot see....
