How Do You Know You Are Real?

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
- The Velveteen Rabbit, In Humanity
I've always liked this quote but reading it again I realized how much it means to me. I'm Real and the love I have is Real. Sadly, it is ugly to people who don't understand.
Thanks, Lo, for including me in your life -- and tattoo.

I knew where the quote was from as soon as I started to read it. My daughter and I have read The Velveteen Rabbit many times. And I agree, they are beautiful words.
