So You Think I'm Perfect?

It's been a rotten week!  I'm asking myself ...Why do people judge when you don't live up to "their standards?"  My daughter and I aren't speaking and I'm sure she's glad for the break.   Today I came across this quote from author Jodi Picoult's book "My Sister's Keeper." It made me laugh and cry at the same time but I feel lots better...

"I'm lonely. Why do you think I had to learn to act so independent? I also get mad too quickly, and I hog the covers, and my second toe is longer than my big one. My hair has it's own zip code. Plus, I get certifiably crazy when I've got PMS. You don't love someone because they're perfect. You love them in spite of the fact that they're not."
Jodi Picoult (My Sister's Keeper)  

I enjoyed watching the movie, it was very thought provoking, but I haven't read the book yet.  It's going to the top of my reading list now.  

Sorry daughter.  I'm so fine with you having another baby as soon as you and hubby want, especially if she's as wonderful as baby Jack.  Thanks for putting up with me. I Really Love You! (Kiss, Kiss, Spit, Spit)
