    "She knew that her life had passed her by.

    She called out a warning. Don't ever let life pass you by!!!" I was dealing with a lot of things this past few weeks. This afternoon, as I was deciding what to wear, those lyrics kind of popped inside my head and it hit me like it never had. Wow. It's like a bunch of emotions...
