On (Un) Conditional Love

I am very transactional with the boys.

Finish your homework.
Get dessert.

Practice your music.
Get something special from the snack drawer.

Keep your desk clean.
Get a sip out of my nice smelling coffee.

Show tenacity through the week.
Get out to dinner at a place of your choice.

Do chores around the house.
Get a hug from me.

Give and take.
You do. I do.

Yep. I admit it.

Although I love them with all my heart, I try to be very transactional with the boys.

Rainbow, on the other hand, showers them with unconditional love.

No rules.
No give and take.

Just. Unconditional. Love.

How can I feel jealous when the boys return (notice the pun on transaction?!) that unconditional love to Rainbow?

So, I observe. As always, I observe from the sidelines.
And, marvel at how life and love plays out.
