Never stop believing in hope. Miracles happen everyday.

A real relationship has: tears and laughter, trust and faith, disagreements, pain and patience, respect, and most importantly, love.

Don't wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul. - Mario Quintana
