Re: Reflections
In Response To: Re: Reflections ()

"But that he loved me and thought me capable of anything and everything there was never any doubt."

I think that the above paragraph says it all.

If a parent is able to impart that to a child. That the child is loved and believed in, is a tremendous gift.

There are many children who have never been physically hit by their parents, and who have been given every material want, whose interiors are ripped apart because they don't feel loved or cared about, or believed in.

It's true that if you hit the child you usually lose the child. But there are much more cruel and brutal acts that one can do which are more harmful
than hitting a child. And I am sure every parent at some point has wanted a different kind of child than the one that they have received, particularly
when the child is acting poorly.

Her father wanted a boy to be the man that he wasn't capable of being. That was the reason he wanted a boy; so that he could fuel the boy to accomplish in this difficult world what he couldn't. She became that man, not in a sexual sense, but in the sense of accomplishment.

Her father beat her, yet she knew he loved and believed in her. That is amazing and beautiful. And I know that she realized that her father was
really beating himself. This is a strange world full of contradictions and irony....but she left this planet knowing that her father loved and believed in her. To me, that is an amazing gift.

It is said that God really tunes into us when we are praying, but when we are acting poorly he doesn't pay attention to that, because the laws of the universe will take care of that. He is only looking for our love. I think the same is with matter what the parent does, what you are really concentrating on are the times that the love is pouring out.
