Beautiful Lines On What It Is To Be A Parent

1599Have you ever come across lines in a book that you may be reading, that beautifully show what it is to be a parent?

We came across these beautiful lines in the book ‘Eat Pray And Love’ by Elizabeth Gilbert. Its not a parenting book at all, nor in any way is it related to parents or children. But these beautiful lines describe the mother-child relationship really well. Just sharing them here:

“I feel about … the way a new mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless newborn baby – I just don’t care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it’s mine. Because it looks exactly like me. It can barf all over me if it wants to – I just don’t care.”
