I wish my "child" would know that he is loved no matter what. Agency plays such a huge role in our lives, and I totally respect the decisions or perspectives of others, though they might not be my own. Nevertheless, love--especially a mother's love--endures forever.
On our wall we have a sign that says "Forever, For Always and No Matter What". I always tell my children, "I love you forever, for always and no matter what!" Even when they get into trouble I make sure to tell them that I love them...they may be loosing privileges or are grounded but I make sure they know that I still love them and give lots of hugs and snuggles. Even as my children get older I think it is important to give them the verbal messages as well as the physical messages of love.
