My dearest loved ones, I fear I have an announcement to make: this may be the last you shall hear from me for the time being. I shall hope you will kindly understand why, once I have finished telling you one, last story. So, goodbye for now, not to be mistaken as forever.
Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.
-Margaret Lee Runbeck-
She decided to cease the day, do what she had wanted and dreamed of for such a long time. There was no time to waste, she ventured out into the world in search of love, happiness and adventure.
Dost thou love life?
Then do not squander time,
for that is the stuff life is made of.
She found many wonderful, amazing, and inspiring people. She made many memories, stories with them to last her whole life. She found excitment. She found love.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
She did not find a knight in shining armour, rather, an Australian riding valiantly toward her on a kangaroo.
Keep steadily before you the fact that all true success depends at last upon yourself.
-Theodore T. Hunger-
She did not find a castle, rather, a humble abode with him in Brisbane, Australia.
Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.
-Henry David Thoreau-
And no, she did not find just anyone, rather, she found herself.
We are still masters of our fate.
We are still captains of our souls.
And so, with all the snakes and kangaroos, together they lived. Down-under, happily ever after.
Would you like to hear the whole story again, from the very beginning? I could re-tell it but, I'm not sure you would believe me...
Much love to all, you know who you are and your meaning to me.
And, to Dad, you always taught me to dream big.
Miss Bailey Suzanne Skaret
