Sarah Vowell’s quote struck a nerve. I’d love to have fewer flaws, but sometimes wonder if there’d be anything left of me if all of my flaws were removed.
|We are flawed creatures, all of us. Some of us think that means we should fix our flaws. But get rid of my flaws and there would be no one left.|

I have come to believe…that our imperfections are what make us unique as individuals and a gauge in which we can measure the quality of our relationships. For example, my husband loves me with all of my imperfections. The opposite could hold true as well, you know the person who gets annoyed at your imperfections. You can sense it and it is not a fun place to be. I have worked hard to look beyond imperfections…that’s how I found my diamond in the rough! 😉
I LOVE this comment! So much so that I recommend you consider making a post out of it. I’d love to be able to reblog that post so all the readers of this blog will have a opportunity to experience such wisdom. Or, if you’d prefer not to do that, would you be open to letting me turn your comment into a post? (With full attribution of course!)
Russ, you can run with it if you want, my schedules full right now but I’d be glad to read your post on the subject. 😀
Thank you, Mrs. P.
