Something happened today, out of the blue. Something good, yet... private, which I am not going to discuss on my public blog. Suffice it to say that this something happened close to 20 years ago, and I just found out about it this morning.
This thing that happened is a testament to the strength, the perserverence and the foresight of my mother. I don't want to revert to cliches, so let me just say that she is a quiet force to be reckoned with, and I am so very, very lucky to have her in my life.
