I learned a huge lesson today: There are more people in this world that love each of us than any of us really know.
Never give up on hope and friends. Yes... there are many people that will let you down throughout your life, but don't forget to look for the people that are there to pick you up when you stumble or fall. One of them might even be someone that has previously hurt you and/or let you down.
As my friend Jill says "Everything works out in the end. If it hasn't worked out, it's not the end."
