"In three words I can sum up everything I 've learned in life: it. goes. on"(Robert Frost). In life there are hard times you may not think you can get past. No matter how hard it gets it keeps going, it’s not like a movie that you can pause and fast forward. Your life may be exiting or you have an easy life, but either way it 's the one you got put with. Maybe you just got into a wreck, or got cancer, or even got a deadly disease, but you must keep fighting for the ones you love.

They didn 't think I would live to be 62 so my hopes of going to my grand daughter Kylie 's wedding and my other gradskid 's graduations.
