What is unconditional love? I’ve loved sushi for over a decade but I feel confident in saying that if it came down to it, I could live without sushi. Is that really a life worth living? A sushi-less existence? Might not seem like it sometimes.
I feel relatively safe in asserting that this type of love without conditions is not inherent in the relationship between a man and his raw fish. It’s not inherent in lots of relationships. It is inherent, however, in parenting.
I have a 4-year-old who covets. He covets just like any other human. He covets what he sees. But there’s one thing he never covets despite what he sees. Head over to Red Tricycle where this time I’m spinning my wheels about coveting, parenting, and unconditional love.
