On love

Delicate Love (Swarovski crystals, Sterling silver) :: All Pretty Things
One day a child came to his mother with a piece of paper on which he had written:
  • Cleaning my room: $10
  • Doing grocery shopping: $5
  • Playing with my brother: $15
  • Good grades in school: $10
  • Total: $40

His mom smiled, took the paper and wrote:

  • Carrying you for 9 months: $0
  • Teaching you everything I knew: $0
  • Feeding you daily: $0
  • Giving you your life: $0
  • Total: $0
Love should be given without expecting anything in return!

    1. Thank you, Laura - it is touching, indeed. It's interesting to get on the other side of the 'equation', motherhood sure tought me a thing or two about love and life :)

  3. Very touching post Alicia. Yes, love should be given unconditionally and without any price tag to it.

    1. Thank you, Menka. I was lucky enough to be given love unconditionally and I am trying my best to do the same... Thanks for stopping by!
