What my daughter said to me a few days ago:

Mama, do you know what true love is?

(Oh, dear God, don't get me started, I think to myself.)

What is it, Olivia?

It is when a princess and a prince love each other more than they love themselves.

Well, take out the prince and the princess stuff, and ....


Where did she come up with that????

OK, so it is a bit simplified.

But what a beautiful description of an ideal.

Whatever true love is, I hope someday my daughter finds it.

And if she does, I hope she never lets it go.

  1. I heard a quote recently that Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to
    your own. Love this and I think it perfectly describes the love we have for our children :)
