"Sometimes life feels enormous," she added. "Remembering that every day the days are getting lighter by the tinniest bit. That sometimes you just have to put one foot in front of the other and that other days you sprint through life. Just hang on in there and keep talking and take a deep breath… and look at this blue sky this morning!! Blue skies ahead."
