Is that last quote yours? I hope your heart isn't broken.

Great list of quotes. I think I loved them all.

Ho CountryDew
My heart is slowly healing. I did learn a hard lesson in knowing that life goes on no matter your circumstances. Thanks for your concern <3

Kimberly Menozzi said...

The John Irving quote is one of my favorites, and it really resonated with me when I started writing "professionally".

As for the final quote: that's one of those lessons we all have to learn at some point. I wish you complete healing - may it come swiftly enough to comfort you, and slowly enough that you see it happening.

Thanks Kimberly. I'm embarrassed to say how long the healing process has taken thus far.
Nice to see you here Anthony.
