You have your mother’s common sense but your father’s devilment. I see them fighting. Let your mother win.
Your mother might be one of the most accomplished scientists on this planet, but when it comes to the impossible, we’re the experts.[to Caitlin]
It’s surprising to see how a young woman, just moments after having a child, can be transformed into a mother.
It’s a Cherokee Rose. The story is that when American soldiers were moving Indians off their land on the Trail of Tears, the Cherokee mothers were grieving and crying so much ’cause they were losing their little ones along the way from exposure and disease and starvation. A lot of them just disappeared. So the elders, they said a prayer, asked for a sign to uplift the mothers’ spirits, give them strength and hope. The next day this rose started to grow right where the mothers’ tears fell. I’m not fool enough to think there’s any flowers blooming for my brother. But I believe this one bloomed for your little girl.[to Carol]
You lose your mama and the very next day nobody gives a s*** about her or you because they think the world is ending.
