I am sitting with my baby, and watching him. Every chance I get, I tell him how much I love him. And every time he looks at me, I smile at him.

I wonder.

Does he know how much I care for him? Can he understand how much love I have for him? That I will do anything for him, and that he can always depend on me?

And then, only when looking at him with eyes full of love, do I begin to understand how great Hashem’s love is for us.

Do we really understand how He loves us? Can we truely comprehend how he is always there, always present in any circumstance, available for all our requests and prayers?

Maybe it is beyond our understanding, but I feel that through my son I am beginning to see at least some of it. I pray that I will be able to return some of the love He shows us. And mostly, I hope that I may be able to pass on this great feeling of love for Hashem to my son.
