"Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused."
— Alan Cohen
I think the reason I love this quote so much is because this is what having my own family to raise and love and care for has taught me. I have an amazing husband who has lifted me out of some dark places and reminded me of who I really am, even when I seem to have forgotten it myself. I hope that this is something that I can teach my children, that this is what a family is, what a family does for the people who are in it.
