Unconditional Love

Some things I have been thinking about a lot lately.......

Unconditional love........can it be learned, or must we be its recipient to truly understand what it is?

Definition from Wikipedia:
Unconditional love is a term that means to love someone regardless of one's actions or beliefs. It is a concept comparable to true love, a term which is more frequently used to describe love between lovers. By contrast, unconditional love is frequently used to describe love between family members, comrades in arms and between others in highly committed relationships. It has also been used in a Christian context to describe God's love for humankind through the forgiveness of Christ.

I have written and deleted what I have wanted to say over 10 times tonight. I can't exactly put my thoughts down into words, so I'll just end with this thought:

"Family love is messy, clinging, and of an annoying and repetitive pattern, like bad wallpaper." Friedrich Nietzche

Halloween 2009

Well...Halloween's over and I really don't have have a lot to report. Kenlee got to help make a haunted house at her daycare which she got really excited about. We didn't have a ton of trick-or-treaters which left us with a giant bowl of candy. Kenlee only lasted about 30 minutes of actual trick-or-treating before she decided she was done. I told her that she didn't have very much candy and she said, "We have a lot at home, I'll just eat that". So, that's about it. I didn't get a picture of her in costume and I didn't get a picture of the pumpkins after they were carved, this is all I got.......

I win the prize for the worst mother for the month of October!
