"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 heartbreaking. But behind all you stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where your begins." (Mitch Albom, For One More Day)
I just finished For One More Day by Mitch Albom. I loved this quote. I love my mother and feel like her story is mine too. I wish I knew her better. But moms don't often focus on themselves and their lives. So kids only know about "Mom" not "Woman" or "Friend" or "Love" or even "Little girl". I wonder how I am a manifestation of my mother and my father too.
But it makes me happy to have them as a part of myself.
Love you Mom and Dad.
