Perspective

Last evening, before cocktails, Lou Panakio made the following observation.
~
"If you wanted to kill the Nestor's, not only would you have to kill them, ... you'd have to nail the coffin shut."
~
Kind words from a dear friend. Lou knows from experience that we know how to take the hits.
~
But let's put this into perspective.
~
Those of you who have seen your kids go to Iraq in harm's way have it way worse.... Those of you who have seen love ones pass on with debilitating diseases have it way worse.... I can go on, but you get the picture.
~
Life always offers challenges. Most of the time, these are endured quietly and relatively privately. Just because ours went loudly public, doesn't mean it is worse than the hits that all of us have to take from time to time. So don't feel compelled to tell us how bad you feel for us. We appreciate it, but there are those of you who have it far worse.
