I love you even though you…

My 3-year-old son knows not to throw things. But he threw his boot, and it hit out neighbor on the head, knocking off his glasses. I came out of the house to see what was happening. He knew what my judgment would be about that, so he started to get angry at me, crossed his arms and yelled, “You’re not my friend! I don’t like you!”

I said, “Liam, I love you even when you throw things.” I had to repeat it three times before he could comprehend what I was saying. Then he started to cry. He apologized to the neighbor and told me, “Mom, I don’t want to throw things again.”

What a relief when someone loves us, even when…. It gives us the freedom to do the right thing, because we want to. Who can you love today, even when…?
