  • Life happens

    Life happens to everybody.  The good, the bad, and the indifferent happen all the time.  Sometimes we plan a vacation and it turns out perfectly.  Or, we go see a movie and it is as good as we hoped.  Or, just sitting around talking to friends and family and you laugh until you cry.  Good times come and go.
