    Swimming Quote - iPhone Background by Patrick Hoesly, via Flickr

    Just keep swimming, I love to swim. There is nothing like it. So fun and so relaxing. I love it. This also makes me think of little Talia, the little brave makeup youtuber, she died a couple of months ago. This was her motto. Makeup was her wig. When I think of her, I smile. I do believe she is in Heaven with Jesus. The battle is behind her now. Just keep swimming.
