I've been wondering lately about love.
More specifically, I've been wondering how we feel love.
Lydia doesn't understand what I'm saying to her. I could talk to her about politics and she would smile and gurgle and coo.
I could talk to her about cancer. Or taxes. Or the joys of grocery shopping. Still she would smile.
So when I tell her I love her, does it mean anything to her?
Can she feel love?
The other night I asked Brian about this. "Does Lydia know we love her?" I said.
He said that her spirit can feel and recognize love, that it's something her spirit knew even before she came to this earth. He said that when I feel love from her or when she feels love from me, it's our spirits communicating.
Maybe that's why babies are so special. Because we feel it deep down, without words.
And of all the senses, I think feeling is best.
