Love is beautiful and wondrous and powerful, but there are so many different kinds of love. The love you have for your parent, is different from the love you have for your partner, and different still from the love you have for your own child.
I may have had my fair share of fleeting romances, silly teen crushes, moments of thinking 'he's the one', but in all my life, I've never experienced anything more amazing, more uplifting, than the love I have for my kids.
Having children is life-changing, to say the least, and even through all the hard parts, the love you have for the amazing being that you helped create never falters. You don't stop loving them just because you're frustrated. You don't stop loving them just because you're having a bad day. You never stop loving them, because you can't.
I realize this isn't true for all circumstances, some parents give their children up for adoption (although who's to say they stopped loving their child), some parents disown their children (my mother would be one of those, and although she sent back every single picture she had of me, everything I'd ever given her, including pictures of my own adorable babies, and although she hasn't spoken to me in over two years, who's to say she doesn't still have love in her heart? Albeit, a very different kind of love than I have for my kids, but love is still love.) and some parents are absent altogether for one reason or another.
But for most parents, the love you have for your children is unconditional, all-consuming, and empowering, it's the best feeling in the world!
