The best things in life truly are free. The smile of a child. Their fascination with the world. Their unconditional love.
My grandchildren don't care if I'm a writer or a ditch digger. They love me just for being Nana, and that's such a wonderful feeling. So often in this world we have to prove ourselves to someone to "earn" their love. It makes me think that God must feel the same way at times when we challenge Him to do XY&Z for us and then we'll trust Him or love Him.
So here's to unconditional love. May we recognize it for the treasure it is, and maybe we learn to practice it more.
