"When life shows you a thousand reasons to cry, show it you have a thousand and one reasons to smile."
Argentine Folk-Singer, Writer
1937 - 2011
Nobody's life is perfect and without problems. We all face challenges. Being rich and famous does not protect anyone from facing life's challenges. Being poor and hungry does not ensure anyone happiness. Being a writer, a singer or a painter does not save you from suffering and pain. We all have reasons to cry, but we have even more reasons to sing and smile. Have you watched the sun rise? Have you heard the singing of the birds? Have you listened to the rain? Celebrate life!
