Adam and I had a conversation about my last post. In it, I said that the unconditional love provided by grandparents is a special, irreplaceable kind of love. I do believe this. But the definition of unconditional love as found in the dictionary is:
Unconditional love is known as affection without any limitations, it can also be love without conditions. This term is sometimes associated with other terms such as true altruism, or complete love.
Here's my question to you: When children are involved, is there ever a time when no
conditions are necessary? Like zero conditions? How about for grandparents? I try to imagine our lives if we would have had no limits, no rules, no schedules; no conditions. All of the issues we had dealing with Jordan would have been a million times worse if she never knew what to expect, or what was expected of her, At least that's what I assume.
Get's you thinking, doesn't it? If you look at it this way, it seems like being a grandparent could be a rather complicated position to be in. Regardless, and keep in mind that I may have no idea what I am talking about, I surely hope that (many
years from now) Adam and I get the opportunity to figure it out, side by side. :)
