“Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.”

– Martin Buxbaum, American poet, author, and editor

This quote makes me think about my mother Rose who passed away two years ago. At family gatherings from time to time, we would break out the slide projector or photo albums and reminisce about the past. Of particular note was just how stunningly beautiful my mother was.

In her earlier years, all the young men wanted to date her. Luckily she chose my dad and they had a beautiful 62-year marriage together.


Who are some of the most beautiful people in your life that resonate with the quote above?

Feel free to reply to me and share your own Rose.
