Too true.

My mother had passed away many years before I married and had my son. I always knew she loved me and my brother. Never doubted it. Ever. But until I held my own child, I had absolutely no idea the depth of that love, the sheer power of that love. It was one of the happiest days of my life, and one of the saddest. I would have given anything to be able to say to my mother, “Now, I understand.”
