“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
Robert Frost
I have always loved this quote from  Mr. Frost.  It is the very essence of the human condition, condensed into one sentence.  I have been physically ill, mentally exhausted, emotionally drained, and at the brink of death.  Lupus has taken me to the very depths of a place where I thought I could go no further, and yet I have.  I have learned things about myself, and even more about the human race than I ever thought possible. Many , many times I have had people tell me, “If anyone had an excuse to give up, you certainly have had!”  But I somehow cannot escape the fact , the simple overwhelming fact , that “Life is beautiful.” Tragic , sometimes, yes.  Hurtful, at times, definitely.  But through all the compounded agony, failures, and disasters, the fact remains, Life is beautiful. Beautifully flawed, but dusted with the sparkle of the most amazing people. Sprinkled throughout with the laughter of my children, the smiles of my husband, the gifts of God , jonquils bursting so joyfully through the unexpected snow we’ve had so late this Spring. A goofy joke told by a two year old , a wave from a complete stranger from across the room. A million small and magnificent things happening in their season, that make life this crazily gorgeous insanity that I am part of, and the million and one things I have to be grateful for.  
Ecclesiastes 3 

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time:

So always remember , perhaps your time to laugh and dance are just around the corner, 

Never  give  up!
