When we love something…

“When we love something it is of value to us, and when something is of value to us we spend time with it, time enjoying it and time taking care of it.
Observe a teenager in love with his car and note the time he will spend admiring it, polishing it, repairing it, tuning it.
Or an older person with a beloved rose garden, and the time spent pruning and mulching and fertilizing and studying it.
So it is when we love children; we spend time admiring them and caring for them. We give them our time.”
