What is love?

As the mother of three addict children I had to relearn what love meant and redefine what love looked like.
I always thought it meant taking care of the needs of my children but somewhere along the way I found out that how I loved my addict children was actually causing them harm.
The hardest journey I have ever travelled has been this one.  
Coming to terms with the the understanding that doing for those I love what they can do for themselves is not love but control.
