"Mommy, do you love Daddy or God more?"
"I love them differently. And I am so thankful God gave Daddy to me."
Long pause, further thinking, wheels turning in his busy mind.
"Do you love us more, or Daddy more?"
"I love you differently than I love Daddy. And I am so thankful Daddy gave you to me."
There is so much more to explain, so much more to say. But how can I ever say enough about my love for my Creator, my soulmate, the children of my heart?
How can I explain the facets of each relationship, how I am blessed, forgiven, and encouraged in each?
They will not understand until they have found themselves in each, a new identity in each, a new self discovery in each.
But for now, my answer suffices the question on his mind.
"I love you differently. And I am thankful."
