Feeling Selfish

     I just read an update on a blog about a mother who has a child who is sick.  He's not doing so great tonight, and it makes me look at my life and think to myself... a big fat WTF?  Nothing in the world compares to seeing your child suffer.  Here I am rambling about my sister moving away while this mother sits next to her son's hospital crib clinging onto hope and faith.
    No matter how much you think your life is hard, there will always be someone who has been through or is going through more pain that you can imagine.  I feel selfish.  Maybe that isn't the right word... but I feel like I'm wrong for feeling this way.  I know my feelings are valid, but I know the struggles I face don't even compare to others.
    So if you're reading this, I ask that you say a prayer for Stellan.  He sure could use them more than me.
