"the trick in life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times."
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
"I just had to tell you that you made my day indirectly today. I was having a truly terrible morning today, and I checked your blog. And there you were: happy, optimistic, and strong even though sometimes you fall down. So I gathered myself together to face the day."
- My beautiful friend, Kat
* here's to hoping all it takes is eight.
