The Title Says It All

I love my children.

I would, without hesitation, give up my life for them.

I would, without a second thought, put my dreams on hold.

I would ensure that as children their need come first.

There is no other way to do it.

Strive to be there for them, to give them the very best as they grow up.

Tell them about the 'history' that I lived through and that I learned that isn't covered in depth in their textbooks.

You know, the stuff they don't want to hear because it not in their textbooks and they're not tested on it. I was told there wasn't as much history when I grew up as there is now. Really!

Help them better understand this world as they are going to have to 'cope' with it as adults.

Love them unhesitatingly and unquestionably. No matter what.

Give them the best foundation for their life as they mature and step out on their own.

Love is the greatest gift of all, to teach, guild and protect to the best of our ability is our duty. Raising children even if we did not give birth is like making a burrito. You put all the good stuff inside, wrap it in a soft warm shell and hold tight with both hands.

There is no doubt in my mind that you are a very loving parent. The love you share here is so great, and I'm sure it's only 1/100th of the love you give to them.
