I Need Answers

My 4.5 year old son asked me the greatest question yesterday.

Son: "Mom, where does love come from?"

Me: Wow, that's a great question...I think it's always in us. All around us. And, y'know what?...I have so much love for you that sometimes it comes bubbling right out of my ears.

Son: Hmmm (and then on to asking for our newest phenomenon...gum. Where does a kids love of gum come from? OY, more questions with again...no answers...Like should this still be in parenthesis? )

I need answers...where does love come from? Do you think they sell a "Where love comes from for Dummies?" I hope not, and I hope it's always bubbling inside of me.

God, that's cute. And what great question. I'll be pondering it all day.
