No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it's turn.
One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.
Optimist: A man who gets treed by a lion but enjoys the scenery.
My sun sets to rise again.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
