A couple of weeks ago, when my daughter got out of a school game, I noticed (I felt) that she needed some daddy/daughter talk [alone time]. So... I took her out. We went, and grabbed something to eat. And then drove to this park, and we parked looking towards a lake. So we started to eat and talk. And talk and eat.
It was raining that day. But it wasn’t any kind of rain. It was a special rain.
No long into the conversation, I realized that the ‘real’ conversation that we were going to be having was going to be a “conversation” that I was planning to have with her 8 to 10 years into the future (not that day!).
Yes! my friends. It was “THAT” conversation.
The LOVE conversation.
For many parents out there, for many moms and dads out there, THAT conversation is out of their vocabulary. It doesn’t exist!
And to be honest, I understand. I understand ... it is not easy. But as a mom, as a dad you need to understand that the “LOVE conversation” with your child, is part of the package that you signed up for when you brought them into this world. It is like when you sign up for a gym membership back in the days. Whether you liked it or not, whether you felt lazy enough and didn’t go to the gym for a whole week. Whether you broke a leg. Whether you broke up or stopped messing around with the personal trainer. Whether WHEREVER, you still had to pay that “mother flyer” membership fee.
Do you get my point? [Houston, do you copy?]
What I said to my Princess, I can’t tell you. What she told me, I can’t tell you either. Because I am not a SNITCH!
[Maybe when she is a little older and stuff, I will drop you some beans here and there, but not yet. She still too young].
But to all of you I will say this:
WHEN YOU ARE SPECIAL, when someone comes into your world, you will know it is the real thing [real love] when YOU can say, “You Complete Me” [and at the same time, your mind, heart, and soul are saying, “You are All I Ever Needed”].
And to Moms and Dads I will say this:
Remember: LOVE no longer has an age. Love no longer happens only after college. NOW, love is EVERYWHERE!. And there isn’t a DAMMM thing you can do about it [but to be ahead of those gym membership payments!].
With love, for love.
