All of yesterday's regrets are 100 chairs we can no longer fill

foolishly trying to fill them today.

  3. Carrie,

    Life does give us some 'hills to climb.' We must remain strong in the face of those challenges.

  17. You've create a lot of depth in a very few words. I always admire that - it's not an easy effect to create. I hope the dark-haired girl solves her equation...
