Mari showed everyone every day what true unconditional love really looked like.
When it came to Mari I loved her with all my heart. No matter how hard or difficult things could get I loved her. Sometimes in those moments of frustration you say things you don’t mean. That is when the emotional roller coaster is leading the charge. If we were to always let our emotions get the better of us, who knows how this world would really be like.
It’s in those moments when we’re calm and we look across the room at our little one and know how much love is filled for her.
Mari always show me her unconditional love. No, Mari never once just called me Mama without being prompted to do so. The word love was never spoken. However, her actions spoke their own silent language as they showed me she loved me in her own unique special Mari way.
I thank the Lord everyday for having been blessed with the opportunity to be Mari’s mom. We thought we were teaching Mari when in fact she was teaching us every single day what love is and should look like.
