    #1 By being positive, not dwelling on the misfortunes that life dealt me.
    #2 Accepting with love in my heart the blessings that have come my way.
    #3 My 14 year old autistic grandson, family, support groups (GRG) (FHU) and my circle of friends are the ones that give me the strength to keep on fighting.
    Live, love and enjoy life. Dance, dance, dance and dance.
