A Facebook friend posed a very interesting question to me recently in a private message. She wanted to know if I thought unconditional love was possible with anyone but your children.

How ironic is this. We spend most of our adult lives trying to distance ourselves from who we are. Working hard to fulfill our highest dreams and aspirations. To create a life for ourselves and our children that was better than the life our parents had. Ultimately, as we age, at least in my case, […]
Hurt People, Hurt I had a conversation recently with a divorced mother of a 10 and 12 year old. Her children have had no contact with their father in over a year. No calls, no emails, no cards or letters. In fact, he told his son that, he was hurt by his dad so he […]
