"In a world where anything less than perfect is unacceptable, I love the message in THE SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT SHELL. Once we learn to embrace the flaws we encounter, the world becomes a much more beautiful place. This will be one of the first lessons I teach my children once they are old enough to understand it. Thank you for the reminder!"
