Being a Parent

I am off again to Yuma today so i figured i would leave a thought before i go. It is from a quote book that i have and i thought it encapsulates "Being a Parent" perfectly.


{Love}
has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get--
only what you are expecting to give--
which is EveRyThiNg.
What you receive in return [VaRieS.]
But it really has no connection with what you give.
You give because you love
and cannot {help} giving.
If you are very lucky,you may be loved back.
That is delicious,
but it does not necessarily happen.

Finally I found your blog! I love your quotes... they're awesome.

Our spring break isn't the same so I couldn't trek with you.

Wanna come teach me to lay tile? I'd pay you.
