Love’s Attention

There once was a little girl who didn’t get enough attention from her parents.

One day she heard a line from a movie where a man said to his wife, “this child is the manifestation of our love and will forever be the object of our love.”

After hearing this, the little girl went to her mother and said, “why do you always ignore me, aren’t I the object of your love?” The mother began to cry and said, “yes you are, and you always will be.”

From that day on the mother made sure to make those words true.
