Unconditional Love

We had our Mother’s Day service at church this morning.  I appreciated my pastor’s point that, in a world that is often a cold and lonely place, it’s good if we have a mother who cares for us.  I find that to be true in my own life.  In the outside world, I’m liked if I’m brilliant or witty or meeting people’s expectations.  But I don’t have to earn my Mom’s love, for I already have it.
