Unconditional Love

I've tried to teach Bella about unconditional love as we've disciplined over the past few years. When she hasn't behaved and I've had to put her in time out, I've explained to her afterwards that even though she makes choices that might disappoint me, I always love her and I will always love her. Well, this morning I was rushing to get us out the door to church and I'll admit it...I was being impatient and probably not so nice. Once in the car Bella said to me, "Mom, do you like me?" "OF COURSE I LIKE YOU HONEY. I LOVE YOU!" I told her. Then she said to me, "Mom, I always love you too. Even when you put me in time out, I still love you." Well, her sweet words pulled me right out of my grouchy mood. I am so blessed to be her mom and to receive her unconditional love.

I am so glad I am not the only one who gets cranky trying to get everyone to church on time...Wish I had a mood boost today!
