This Week's prompt: Extremes
As this week has unfolded I have thought a lot about what extremes we are willing to do for those we love. A very good friend of mine lost someone that was near and dear to their heart and that just reinforced in me the need to write this post......
What is it that you are willing to do for those you love? What extremes are you willing to go through.... Oh yes, I know so well the saying, "I would die for you." But would you???? Seriously... would you put yourself in harms way for those you love..... I think that when push comes to shove (who comes up with these sayings?) it just wouldn't happen.....
I happen to have a great love for my dogs... yes, I included my daughter's dog in that "plural version of dogs".. but the absolute truth is that I would not lay down my life for my dogs.... but my children??? well,..... that is a completely differ story....,. it would be nothing... and I do mean nothing... for me to give my life for theirs..... so as much as we say that we love our pets as much as our children...do we really???
that is not the reason for this post.....
As you read this... I will either be in the air, or in an airport, or .... waiting to arrive to see my daughter......
AND I cannot tell you how many people have said to me, "She's 20, why does she need you?" and the simple answer is this... she asked and told me she needed me... so I flew across the world to help.
So seriously now, what extremes would you go through to help those you love? Obviously my answer is fairly clear... I would (and am) fly across the world for them.... and back!
AND then the question beckons.... would they do the same for you??
I would love to hear your comments, or read your post that is linked up... or better yet both!
