If you're going through hell, keep going. ~Winston Churchill

All of those quotes are wonderful, but the one above was my favorite.

These quotes remind us how we are not the first, nor will we be the last, to walk this painful path. That's why it's so important to share the journey with others, because it can so feel like we're the only ones.

Thank you for sharing these, Katie.

While I like them all and they ring true for me-

My favorite one right now is this one...

You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present. ~Jan Glidewell

Simply because of how the last year has unfolded between me and my siblings, this one speaks to me.

Sometimes you have to let the past go, so you can focus on your present, the people who are alive in your life who really care and depend on you- ALL while grieving the loss of your loved one and of your past as you knew it!

Sounds almost impossible at times when I think about that. If ever I figure out how to do it all successfully, I will certainly let you know!

Sunny days seem to hurt the most

Is I know, I'll see you again someday

Katie,

Those are some wonderful quotes... my favorite has to be the second one though... it truly applies to me and the way I have been living my life... time to unload some of the baggage from my arms. Love you Katie for making me realize some important things today. Sharon
