When things don't go to plan, no doubt one can find it unquestionably disheartening. We can feel like giving up and simply walking away. But, when you feel like this, you should throw off everything that hinders you and ignite once more the fire in your soul. Take your cross and place it into your hands and walk bravely on.......Margaret Theresa Naughton
