"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 your stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where yours begin." -- Mitch Albom.
Happy Mother's Day! My mom, a true California Beach Girl at heart! She's escaping the desert to go to the beach with me this morning. I love her stories of being a wild child growing up in Long Beach and Newport, her English mummy having immigrated to America and married a Naval Officer, and how my mom's firey red hair eventually won the heart of my father right there in the barracks of San Pedro. At 70 years old, her hair has greyed, but her spirit and fitness has not! Love you Mum!
