Thanks for all the heartfelt comments. I am the woman in the picture. It was a rough year to be diagnosed with breast cancer and undergo chemotherapy right before my beautiful daughter's wedding. When I was getting ready with the girls in the wedding and they were all there watching me it was just very emotional. I am doing great now and living every day to the fullest and I am thankful for each one.

This picture reminds me of saying - A person is judged by who he remembers when he/she is most happy, not when he is sad or in agony.

I cried at a wedding too. I was Best Man for my friend Steve. Why did I cry? Because my own marriage had disintegrated, and my optimism dashed. Yet I was there for them. (They're still together.)

Time does not fade the classics. She may have wrinkles on her face, but her dress is perfect. True beauty is in elegance.
