Ann Weems wrote: "It was a family treasure. That golden vase, the priceless vase that had belonged to my great-grandmother & my grandmother & now to my mother. The vase sat on the mantle, out of reach of little fingers. However, I managed to reach it. I climbed to reach it, & I broke it. I broke the family treasure.

"Then I began to cry in loud sobs that brought my mother running. I could hardly get it out. ’I broke the vase,’ I said. ’I broke the treasure.’

"A look of relief came over her face, & she said, ’Oh, I thought that you had been hurt.’ She hugged me, & made it very clear that I was her priceless treasure."
