i don’t hope that one day i could write this well. i am simply thankful that this woman can write so well. so very very thankful.

From “The House on Mango Street” by Sandra Cisneros
chapter: The Family of Little Feet
“Hurray! Today we are Cinderella because our feet fit exactly, and we laugh at Rachel’s one foot with a girl’s grey sock and a lady’s high heel. Do you like these shoes? But the truth is it is scarey to look down at your foot that is no longer yours and see attached a long long leg.”

it seems so inadequate. but all i can say is, me too….me too.
