Dumbstruck

Someone once told me that if I got together with everyone I know, and we all threw our troubles into a big pile, giving everyone a chance to exchange their problems for someone else's... that after a quick glance at some of the horrors lying there on the ground, I'd happily take my own troubles back.

I didn't fully understand that parable until today.

[Yes, this is the second time I've used this post title. A similar gut punch inspired the first one.]

It's a harsh realization sometimes.... Just cherish your wife and kids and know that you are blessed. Send warm fuzzies your way.

I assume you got the same gut punch I did...

I'm certainly feeling gut-punched.
