Quotes Blue Eyed Vixen Liked

“My mother's hands were sixty-four years old, weathered, beautiful. They were soft and hard and they held no duplicity of emotion. They didn't love and hate. They were not tender and violent. They never offered me the world and handed me hell. They were constant: I miss them purely.”
Maggie MacKellar, When It Rains

Blue Eyed Vixen Some of this story is hitting too close to home, and I'll read a few pages then need to walk away, find a distraction...or do that chore that I have been putting off but suddenly cannot wait another minute before starting...Yes! I am an emotional coward, I know.
