week 4 part 1

"Life is a drama full of tragedy and comedy. You should learn to enjoy the comis episodes more." -jeanette walls mom pg.129 from The Glass Castle
This quote really relates to the book in many ways. Jeanettes life is really stressful and hard. She never really has had a permanent home or a real school to go to. Her life ise very complicated and challenging. Her mom and dad struggle with jobs and her dad is an on and off alcoholic. Her parents live life very differently than others so when jeanettes mom says this quote, it really made me think. Her mom tries to have jeanette think positive, have a good adittute, and never give up. I think that her mom really inspired her to keep going no matter what and thats how she lived her hard life as a child.
