spilled milk

I've alluded to the idea that the last month hasn't been the happiest in my personal life, which is true. And while I'm now managing to be honestly happy most of the time, I still have hours/days when I just feel achingly sad. I have found though, that when I get into one of those moods that stepping back a bit helps. Yes, it is appropriate and natural that I am sad, but the man I met who lost his arm, his son and his wife in the same week has much more to bear. The parents who had to withdraw care on their 3.5 year old son have lost so much more than me. It doesn't invalidate my own grief, but it certainly puts it in perspective for me.
