A quote from one of my holiday books...

Parents, if they love you, will hold you safely above their swirling waters, and sometimes that means you'll never know what they endured, and you may treat them unkindly, in a way you otherwise wouldn't.

But there's a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heart-breaking. But behind all your stories is your mother's story, because hers is where yours begins.

p. 194

From For One More Day by Mitch Albom

* I love all of Mitch Albom's books. They are sentimental, simply written, and based on complex human relationships. For One More Day will make you appreciate your Mom, which is always good. - OCG*
