My friends

This post is generally about life. A message from one of my friends on facebook struck me as inspiring tonight. As most all of you know, I have had some health issues over the past couple years. I feel strongly about my success in overcoming them and continuing to heal. Much of this is due to my inner strength, determination and refusal to give up. But, most of it is because of my support system, my friends & family - the ones who won't let me stay down. The ones that share their ups and downs with me. They empathize with me, cry or laugh with me about our downs and smile about our ups.

Life can be hard, it can be tragically hard at times. However, how we choose to get through the hard times is what makes us who we are. If you're having a hard time, just take a deep breath and know that I'm here for you as I'm sure others in your life are as well. Let someone know, swallow the pride and ask for a hug if you need.

Life is a roller coaster, there are ups and there are downs, but the ride sure is fun so enjoy it while you can.

love you all - k
