"It's going to be okay. Just give things a little time. And in the meantime...keep believing in yourself; take the bet of care; try to put things into perspective; remember what's most important; don't forget that someone cares; search for the positive side; learn the lessons to be learned; and find your way through to the inner qualitites...the strength, the smiles, the wisom, and the optimistic outlook that are such special parts of you. It's going to be okay. I know it will be. Because I know you." - Barin Taylor
