Today I really had a eye opening experience. A family that I have worked with for a few years found out that their mom has stage 3 cancer throughout her body. 8 children ages 19 to 3 who entered my life desperate for help continue to be faced with struggles that children shouldn't have to deal with. I have lots of thoughts about the whole situation but regardless of my feelings ultimately it is about these kids. I know that the days ahead will be tough for them but it is going to be far beyond the next few days that they will need help.

It puts my problems in perspective and really has made me feel grateful for what I have. How dare I complain about my small problems? While this blog is my therapy I will remain silent about my issues today and pray for this family and the strength they will need to survive.
