Ninja Mom reflects on suffering

One of the life-altering things I experienced upon having a child was getting the first real inkling of the meaning of unconditional love.  Once I had children of my own, the loving words of God as Father took on a whole new dimension.

Something similar happened with my understanding of suffering.  Every time one of my children suffers, even a small pain, I suffer with him.  But even so I do things for my children which cause them suffering, when those things are for their good.

I spend much time worrying about suffering, avoiding suffering, and trying to escape suffering when it comes.  And sometimes, like my baby in the story above, I think about suffering and wonder, “Don’t you love me?”  But I know that He does.
