Chapter 10, Page 19, Book 17

Love changes everything.  It changes all we do and say.  Love spills over to others and the circle of love keeps growing

One of my children once asked me how I had enough love to go round. With the big family I had it was impossible for him to imagine that I could love all of them equally. To his way of thinking, at the time, maybe it was better to have just one child and not many.  But he came to see later on that his love could grow too when he married and had his own family.

My answer was and still is that love has no bounds, it grows and grows and I always had enough love in my heart for all of them.  It’s the same for all people, not just family.  When we love, there is enough to share with every one.  

Our family is a circle of strength and love… Our family with every birth and union the circle grows, our family is a circle of strength, every crisis faced together makes the circle grow stronger. 

Harriet Morgan

There is always time for love. You can always make time for the what you want to do.  You have to give love if you want to be loved and the more you love the more you learn what love is.

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

Mother Teresa

Being an 'only' child, I think I might understand your son's question. But yours was a beautiful reply! Isn't it wonderful how this journey we call Life provides answers all on its own ... when the student is ready.

This is a great description of 'enough love to go around'. Some people limit their love, but that is NOT true love. You did a great job with LOVE!
