I can sure get depressed about the health problems my family face.I get so tired of the pain and struggle to give the kids what they need and deserve. Saturday I took Joseph, 8 and a couple of his friends to a local park. I happened to notice a memorial plaque on a dinosaur ride. It was for Zachary, our next door neighbor. I remember Joseph and Zachary playing when they were 4 years old and realized, that it has been 3 years since his parents lost him to cancer. We face chronic pain and mental disorders, but we are all alive and none of our problems should shorten our time with each other. I cried and hugged my family and told them how much I love them and how grateful I am for every day we have together. It could be so much worse, pain is nothing compared to losing a family member. We can handle this, and be thankful.
