Love is a widely used word in our societies. It's a word used for many different situations and various scenarios. It can easily be misinterpreted and misread, it can be used inappropriately and be overused. The word has endless possibilites and yet we find it so hard to define. Regardless of opinion or the dictionary definition, there is one type of love that I feel cannot be questioned.

The love for your offspring is something that is so real, you can almost touch it. Love is an unseen, unquanitfied substance, yet the way I love my children often seems tangible. The discussion of being a parent can often bring up sad and overwhelming feelings of emotion. I am aware that some of you may have lost a child or have had difficulty in conceiving, and I do not want to presume that my love for my children is in anyway everyone's love. I hope you understand that this article comes from a place of sincerity and kindness, not generalisation.

Becoming a parent has been one of those life experiences that is truly life-changing. The sacrifices and adaptations that took place after giving birth are endless, and yet I would not change it for any of those. The other day I was looking at old photos and took a few minutes to really digest all that has been. Being a parent seems to speed life up somewhat. It feels like only a few seasons ago that Quintyn was born, and recently we celebrated his twelfth birthday. So when looking back on my time as a mummy, I find it helps to try to comprehend all the small events inbetween those more memorable ones.

The uprooting that being a parent can bring is difficult, yet the copious feelings of love for your children blurs the reality of the change in routine. The wholeness of a mother's or father's love is something so wonderful, I feel as if there should be another word for it. As said above, the variety of uses for the word can be misleading, and a love for your child is a whole other feeling. Therefore, I would like to take some time to tell my children how much I love them. I tell them all the time, but I am going to make it clear to them as often as I can, how much I love them, and although the future will hold many changes for all us, my love will not change.

I hope you all have a chance in the upcoming weeks to tell your child or children how much you love them. This cannot be said too much, and is what makes the human race so spectacular.

WE started living – in.. We discussed faMILY, KIDS, future, moving to EU together.. everything was going good until of last August when I started to get jealous about his moves, I got controlling and things started to get worse.. we spoke about it a lot of times where he expressed how he felt but I was not able to understand why I was doing that.. During our discussion I would always say I did .. This February he called it off and since then I have been a mess.. I gave it a lot of thought and realised my mistakes and why I was doing it.. I tried talking to him .. begged him.. pleaded him .. but he says that he has lost all his feelings for me and would never get back to me..I was in my knees praying looking for help, them i fine a comment online how a spell caster help to restored relationship get ex lover back, ” so i decided to give a try coz i love my boyfriend so much. so i contacted Dr happy tell him all my problem and he gave me 100%guarantee that i will have my boyfriend back after the spell so i was gifted and lucky to have contacted him i did every thing he ask of me and to my greatest surprise a day after the spell my boyfriend call me and apology for what he did to me and ask for my forgiveness to come back again for me, we both are happily living together again plz Contact him urgently via.........

So very true..... but even more incredible is the love you will feel for your grandchildren. I had the privilege of being with my girls during labour and delivery for each of my 3 precious grand babies.... bonding with them just moments after their arrival. It's impossible to put into words the depth of the love you feel for the babies of your babies.... being a Nana is absolutely amazing!!!!

Beautifully written. I'd like to add that as well as telling them you LOVE them, don't forget to tell them just how very PROUD you are. Sincerely praise their accomplishments, big and small, even when they are all grown up. I love and am extremely proud of my four beautiful grown children. Parenthood is the most rewarding job.

So true. I also wish there was another word for the love we have for our children. I wish to have more but for now, i have a son and he brings my husband and I so much joy. The years we have w him will be a gift and blessing. One day he will have a family of his own and hopefully look back at his childhood w happiness, laughter, respect and true love.

Love your show and your blog! Your visions are true inspirations.

Hi, after my daughter had a recent horrific ski accident whilst on a school trip, telling my child that i love them everyday has been so much more of an urgency for me. Getting that call at work to say your child is unconscious and heading to hospital and you are not with them, knowing that I told them that morning I love them made me feel better knowing that they knew I was coming . A great article.

As a new parent, I couldn't agree more. I enjoy the change that has been brought to my life and the new chapter that has begun. The sacrafices are worth it! I wouldnt have it any other way.

Hi Sarah. you are absolutely right .There is no other feeling than loving your family. You make sacrifices along the way so they will have a chance at a better life.
