12 yr history lesson through photos...
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EACH DAY. THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY...
YOU WILL TRY NEW THINGS,
YOU WILL NEED HELP,
YOU WILL HAVE BEAUTY,
YOU WILL HAVE PEACE,
YOU WILL HAVE STRUGGLES,
YOU WILL HAVE TEARS,
YOU WILL NOT HAVE A CLUE WHAT IS ABOUT TO CRUSH YOUR EXISTENCE,
YOU WILL HAVE FUN EVEN THOUGH ITS PAINFUL,
YOU WILL BE BLESSED,
YOU WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE
AND THE ENTIRE TIME IT WILL BE SO FOGGY YOU CAN'T SEE WHAT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU BUT IF YOU STAY THE COURSE,
YOU WILL FIND BEAUTY IN THE ASHES.
GO... BE R.E.A.L.
WHILE YOU LIVE EACH DAY!
