'Do not regret getting older. It's a privilege denied to many.' - It absolutely is a privilege denied to many. I've seen far too many amazing people denied the beauty of getting old with loved ones, so I will relish and take every birthday I am given.
I'm a strong person, but every now and then I would like someone to take my hand and say everything will be alright. -- he's always been the only one that can tell me everything will be ok and it just is!
