MY PROBLEMS PALE IN COMPARISON...

I JUST READ SHELLY'S JOURNAL ABOUT HER SON'S OPERATION TOMORROW. I FEEL REALLY LOUSY ABOUT MY EARLIER JOURNAL. I AM WHINING BECAUSE I HAVE SOME WEIGHT TO LOOSE. THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT A HUGE DEAL IN LIGHT OF WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO DEAL WITH...SORRY!
ALSO MY GIRL FRIEND, MONICA, SHE DOES MY NAILS, JUST FOUND OUT THAT HER 20 YEAR OLD SON HAS BONE CANCER. I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO TALK TO HER SINCE SHE FOUND OUT LAST THURSDAY. SHE IS EITHER ON THE RUN TO THE HOSPITAL OR SHE JUST CAN'T TALK ABOUT IT RIGHT NOW. I AM RESPECTING HER PRIVACY AND SHE WILL CALL WHEN SHE CAN. APPARENTLY, THE NEWS IS NOT POSITIVE. I AM SO...UPSET...HE IS JUST A YOUNG MAN. PRAYERS FOR NICK.
SO, NEEDLESS TO SAY, I REALLY HAVE NOTHING TO GRIPE ABOUT.

HEY, DON\'T BEAT YOURSELF UP FOR BEING HUMAN. WITH A VERY FEW EXCEPTIONS ALL OF US SEE OUR OWN ISSUES FIRST BECAUSE WE LIVE WITH THEM 24/7 BUT MOST OF US ALSO OPEN OUR ARMS AND HEARTS TO OUR FRIENDS WHEN WE FIND OUT THEY ARE HAVING PROBLEMS TOO.
I AM REALLY SORRY FOR BOTH OF YOUR FRIENDS, NOTHING HITS US AS HARD AS HAVING ONE OF OUR CHILDREN SICK OR IN SERIOUS DANGER OF DYING.
YES, 20 IS SO VERY YOUNG TO BE SO ILL, WE LOST A NEICE TO LUKEMIA AT 18 AND IT JUST BREAKS YOUR HEART TO WATCH SOMEONE WHO SHOULD HAVE THE WHOLE WORLD AND LIFE AHEAD OF THEM BE TAKEN FROM YOU.
YOUR A GOOD PERSON AND I KNOW YOU WILL GIVE YOUR FRIENDS ALL THE SUPPORT, PRAYERS AND LOVE YOU CAN AND THAT THEY CAN ACCEPT.

I agree with GeorgiaW. Do not beat yourself up. We are only human and we live daily in our own worlds. Life has a way of waking us up somtimes and making us be grateful for what we have. We are only human when we take thigs for granted. It is O.K. I will pray for your friends children and for your friends to have the strength to hold up during this time of need. Naomi xo
