Unconditional love requires much of us sometimes. My parents, particularly my father, were very disappointed when I chose to be a stay-at-home mommie. Actually, I think he was disgusted and embarrassed at my wasting my education. I knew what was right for me, and as much as I regretted disappointing him, my own little family was my first priority.
I hope your children don't disappoint you the way I did my father, but I suspect some will. Prepare yourself, Tigger.
