I noticed this woman walking with two young kids who were riding scooters. As they were crossing the road, the woman told them to watch where they were going. Her voice sounded stern. The younger of the two girls said: "I love you, mummy!"
"I love you too, pumpkin!" the woman said.
I believe we all start off like that little girl who loves unconditionally. As you get older, you learn to love conditionally. If someone treats you badly, you either attack or withdraw your love; and you only love when someone does something you like.
I hope that girl never grows out of that love and continues to love unconditionally no matter what.
