    From Death To Life

    What did it feel like to suffer? To feel like I was being tortured day after day? I want to share it with those who ever wonder if they'll make it through whatever's hurting them. I want you to know that you're not alone. Because when I suffered, no one was there to hold my hand...

    A Happy and Full Life

     I am not content to live a life watching TV.  I embrace every friendship and love I ever have and do my best to take care of them.   I enjoy the journey as much as the destination.   "Life is the classroom; Love is the lesson"
