When I was a child, I loved my family because this was my instinct, and I always knew they loved me. Basicly I loved them because they loved me, and I knew it. And I knew they wouldn’t leave me, that they were there. Now I am eternally grateful for the unconditional love and support they have given and continue to give me. If I ever become a parent, I hope I can provide the same amount of forgiveness, love, kindness, patience, support and sacrifice as my parents. At the same time, there are things I picked up from my folks, I hope will stay a result of their generation. I hope I won’t project my fears, insecurities or other negativity onto my kids without knowing it. Though, perhaps that is too much to ask. :)
