Life is short...Beautiful Lesson

Beautiful Lesson  !!!!!!!!



The girl in the picture is  Katie Kirkpatrick,  she is  21 .  Next to her, her fianc
é, 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. 




Katie, in her wheelchair with the oxygen tube ,  listening 
 to a song from her husband and friends  


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 last 
We should stop making ou
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.
