A Month of Love

Today I saw love in parent-child relationships. My student and her daughter, who is just about to graduate from university, came to class together. It was fun to watch them interact and hear them talk about things they do together. Then at Starbucks I saw a mother and her son enjoying some time together. They made each other laugh.

I know my parents love me. I experience it often-like in the lovely package they sent me which arrived today. Somehow, though, as I watch other families interact, I can understand my parents' love for me in a deeper way. Not being a parent myself, I am not sure I will understand this as fully as those who are parents, however, today I got a little better grasp on it.

And, now that I am sitting in front of the computer waiting for news of what is going on in Madison, I can understand a bit better how they must have felt on March 11, 2011.

So, I wait...
