The love that you can't explain. It is a wonderful emotion that comes along when you least expect it after your baby boy or girl has been born. You are ecstatic, nervous, worried, or even irritated about what is ahead. Life is never quite the same. Then you do this again and again and you find yourself being a pro at it. You know a lot more, you have been through much and for some they never want to do it again!
Loving your offspring doesn't have to be a challenge, but it can be depending on your personal view. Some people are quite negative when it comes to child-rearing and others not so much. Many families don't fall apart when challenges show up, but there are plenty that do. Those that fail don't seek necessary help outside of themselves or toxic circles. Some parents complain, badmouth, lie, and fight with their children. They don't seek anything more than a rabbit hole of misery. But we all have a choice, don't we?
Today we can choose to be that one who shows love, appreciation and care for children or we don't. The world is tough enough and we only make it worse when we don't parent children effectively and when problems arise don't seek professional help. Whether your children are with you or not, love them, you just might be the only person they can trust.
