Smoke gets in your Eyes

The song "Smokes gets in your Eyes" reminds me of my dear mother. She used to smoke like a train, which eventually led to lung cancer. It wasn't until I got older that I figured out why I always had sinus infections and colds when I was growing up. I always seemed to be sick more often than my friends but never knew why. Yep, it was the second-hand smoke. After I moved away from home, I seldom ever got sick and to this day, I seldom ever get sick. I avoid people that smoke, especially when my kids are with me. I don't want to expose them to this unnecessary evil.
Aside from her chain smoking, she was a great mother to all of us kids. She would wake up every morning really early and make breakfast and send us all off to school. She never missed a day, even when she was sick. She was really awesome and I miss the long talks we'd have and the time spent together.
Should I title this Smoke gets in your lungs?


Victorious Smile!

She won an international smile contest for the month of October 2009. This contest was sponsored by Division of Pediatric Dentistry, Department of Oral Health Sciences, University of British Columbia, Canada.

God bless y'all!
