Blogging through The Orthodox Heretic day 24

The Father's Approval is a story of the transformative power of unconditional love. A father loves his son, who loves the father back, but as long as the father is critical of the son's life choices, no change takes place even though the son is not entirely happy with his direction either. When the father finally is able to say to the son, "I love you exactly as you are and you don't need to change anything," the son begins to change.

It has been those folk who have loved me with out preconditions or expectations who have been most important in my formation... and I am thankful for each of you.
