1.Pick 3 quotes for 3 days and write what they mean to you.
2.Nominate 3 different bloggers each day (no repetition).
3.Thank the person who nominated you.
For my first quote I’m going to go with my all time favorite author, Melina Marchetta. I know I’ve talked about her before, and particularly about Jellicoe Road. So instead I’m going to choose one of my favorite quotes from Saving Francesca:
My favorite thing about amazing quotes is how they make us feel. Can a quote really tap into our emotions, make the feelings truly come alive? If you’ve ever had depression, or loved someone close to you with depression, I think this quote hits the nail on the head.
That is especially true of a parent. Our children have no choice but to take on our emotions, and depression can be contagious to the impressionable. I’m not blaming parents with depression. It’s an illness, not a choice. I’m just saying that I think the quote captures the essence of having a parent that is suffering.
