Quintessential

Ahhhh! i can't believe i haven't read this book until now. in a way, though, i am glad to have waited so long. glad to have waited until i became a mother. this story is truly a treasure. one of my favorites now. from afar, i had always believed it to be just a fluffy children's story. alas, how wrong i was. the lessons, the morals, the relationships, the heartaches, the joys are all so relevant and true. i can say that this story was life-changing for me. there are so many quotes and vignettes to be shared from alcott's gem little women, but marmee's exclamation and the proceeding narrative at the end of the book are of the most poignant, in my opinion: "touched to the heart, mrs. march could only stretch out her arms, as if to gather children and grandchildren to herself, and say, with face and voice full of motherly love, gratitude, and humility-- 'oh, my girls, however long you may live, i never can wish you a greater happiness than this!'"
