“All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhood completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.” -Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven"
I love this quote. So much. Because I think its t.r.u.e.
But glass that bubbles or is imperfect in some way is much more interesting than "perfect" glass, right?
Because, really, who's not just a little screwed up?
I love my parents.
