Sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair at first,
but in reflection, you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would not have realized your strength, potential,
will power or heart.
Nothing happens by chance or means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of
true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like
a smoothly paved, flat road to nowhere ... safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.

hurt and lost or have been sad and disappointment know how to truly comfort and forgive another in the same circumstances.

You can make of your life anything you wish.
Create your own life and then go out and live it

if you love someone tell them,
for you never know what tomorrow
may have in store.
And learn a lesson in life each day you live.
