HOPE in the DARK...sometimes this is how I feel dealing with my babies who have terminal illnesses - just have to remember to MAKE THE MOST of EVERY minute I have with them, before I have to let them cross over.
You try to be strong all the time. For your friends, for your family, for everyone. But one day you just won't be able to do it anymore. It's okay though, all the people you were being strong for will be there for you.
