I wanted to take a moment and acknowledge my gratitude for the health of my children. Yes, we have the occasional scare, as all parents do. But both kids are generally healthy, and that’s a big deal. Financial issues are stressful, and sometimes scary. But they don’t approach the level of stress or fear any parent with a child who experiences serious health problems must feel. I don’t want to imagine what that must be like.
I recently read something a friend posted about a family they know. The child in question is strong, and the family is strong, too. But their battle is still a frightening one, and my heart goes out to them. I hope their burden is eased, and soon. No child should have to struggle just to do the things most children take for granted.
That’s all. It’s a short one, but it’s where my head is at the moment.
