Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

and your words
are the most lovely kisses

    True words.. and your mom has the most beautiful and interesting face. Well done, Tori, but how does mom feel about it! ;-) x

  • Thank you Maureen for those kind words about my Mom. She is still beautiful at 72 and takes better care of herself than anyone I know. She walks 6 miles every day. She also has a sense of humor and she knows I’m just kidding, I think there is a bit of truth to that quote and I thought I caught that feeling in her face.
