"Parenting is a clumsy yet majestic dance in the flames. When you parent you fall in love with a person who is always changing into someon else, and whom you know will leave you. Yet most parents will say that they have never given themselves to anyone as fully as they have to their children. Parenting is a career with the crazy-making job requirement of simultaneously surrendering to and letting go of someone you love, over and over and over again." - Elizabeth Lesser.
