    Beautiful Lesson !!!!!!!!

    The girl in the picture is Katie Kirkpatrick, she is 21 . Next to her, her fiancé, Nick, 23.

    The picture was taken shortly before their wedding ceremony, held on January 11, 2005 in the US .

    Katie has terminal cancer and spend hours a day receiving medication.

    In the picture, Nick is waiting for her on one of the many sessions of chemo to end..

    In spite of all the pain, organ failures, and morphine shots, Katie is going along with her wedding and took care
    of every detail. The dress had to be adjusted a few times due to her constant weight loss

    An unusual accessory at the party
    was the oxygen tube that k atie used throughout the ceremony and reception as well.
    The other couple in the picture are Nick's parents. Excited to see
    their son marrying his high school sweetheart.

    At the reception, katie had to take a few rests.
    The pain did not allow her to stand for long periods

    Katie died five days after her wedding day. Watching a wom
    an so ill and weak getting married and with a smile on her face makes us think...... Happiness is reachable, no matter how long it lasts . We should stop making our lives complicated.


    Life is short


    Break the rules


    forgive quickly


    love truly


    laugh constantly


    And never stop smiling


    no matter how strange life is


    Life is not always the party we expected to be


    but as long as we are here, we should smile and be

    grateful.
