Translation: "I love you all the way to heaven."
I was cleaning up some stuff tonight and ran across this gem from Buddy. Several weeks before Valentine's Day Buddy asked me who loves him more: Me or Jesus. Because I'm an idiot, I told him that Jesus loves Him more. I was trying to teach him that no matter what he does, Jesus loves him perfectly and completely. Whereas I lose my patience and get angry, Jesus never does.
Of course that hurt his feelings really bad. I tried to backpedal, scrambling to find a way to convey how much I love him too. I told him I love him all the way to the moon and back, as I often do. He believed me, but was still hurt that I have "limitations" on my love.
A few weeks later, this darling Valentine arrived in my hands. I feel like a jackass all the time when parenting him, but this really cut deep.
And yes, this would be the 10,982,730th reason I love this boy. He has no conditions on his love.
