  1. Hi, My name is Constance Harris, i`m 46 years old holding on to hopes and dreams. Hope is all have,then there are times i feel i don`t have that any more. i feel stuck in a box and just put away. My life is just a hope with wishes. Life is not easy it is what you make out of life. So now hope is hope and dreams is dreams. But life is wonderful.
