This helps me remember that it could never be fixed:
What kills love? Only this: Neglect. Not to see you when you stand before me. Not to think of you in the little things. Not to make the road wide for you, the table spread for you. To choose you out of habit, not desire, to pass the flower seller without a thought. To leave the dishes unwashed, the bed unmade, to ignore you in the mornings, make use of you at night. To crave another while pecking your cheek. To say your name without hearing it, to assume it is mine to call.

This helps me remember that it's been worth it:
The minute you begin to do what you really want to do, it's really a different kind of life.
-R. Buckminster Fuller
This makes me UNBELIEVABLY happy:
Dad and I are so proud of you.
-Pam O'Dell (my mom)
And this speaks for itself:
