What Would You Do for Love?

Love is a pretty amazing thing.  When we're young we think love is all about the puppy love we experience with the butterflies in your stomach.  But as we grow we learn that love is so much more than you could have imagined.  Love gives us strength to do things we never would have considered.  However, I never really understood the deepest most unconditional love ever, until I had my own children.  To know just seconds after meeting someone for the first time ever, a mother would DIE for her child.  I remember VERY soon after the birth of one of the boys I held that swished little face and told him I loved him, and my husband who was looking on, asked "Really? Already?"  I guess maybe its difference for moms but, yes I loved each of my boys the instant I held them, maybe long before that, in away I don't think I will ever be able to truly describe. 
The kind of love that has led me to sacrifice my own desires on a regular basis without question or resentment.  The kind of love that makes me want only the best for them, and makes me crazy when it seems they aren't listening to my experience that will help them get there.  Being a mom means really and truly living with a piece of you wandering around this world just outside your constant control, but still being able to feel all their joy and pain just as much, if not more than they do.
For me my love for them, has taken me outside of my comfort zone, where I am forced to be more confrontational then I would have ever dared to be before.  It means dealing with judgment from other moms to bring my children up in the way I feel is best for them in the long run.  My love for my children means I would literally lay down my life for any one of theirs.

While I try my best every day to let them know that I love them, I don't think there's such a thing as telling them too much.  I'm not sure where the time goes, but Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I love using V-Day as an excuse to get mushy with my kids and remind them how much I love them.  And I love these cards from Tiny Prints for kids for Valentines Day.  I love that they're personalized.  These are just two adorable options of MANY to chose from.  Check out all their Valentine's Day Cards.
