So I know you guys are probably wondering what Perspective I'm talking about... Well the Rx's were only $80 as compared to a hospital stay which would be a lot more than that.... And I have my son who is the cutest little boy I know. (I think I might be a little bias) Point of the story is, there is always something worse that could happen. Sometimes I feel like I was given a lemon of a son. He has gone to the Dr. more than I think I ever have in my entire life! But he has made Chris and I so much stronger. I have learned so much from going to the Dr. all the time. I know that "idiopathic" means Unknown. So when there is a disease with Idiopathic in front of it, it means that the cause of the disease is unknown. I know all about asthma and the different medicines that can be prescribed for it. And I know the best cream for your skin if you have eczema... Chris and I have learned the power of prayer and fasting from this little guy. We have learned to appreciate our family and friends and have learned to realize EVERYTHING they do for us. We have become stronger as a husband and wife and as parents from these experiences. So when I put all of this into perspective I couldn't have asked for anything else. How can we truly appreciate what we have when we aren't threatened by the thought of loosing it? I cherish every day I have with my family because I know people that have lost their loved ones and know that anything could happen to them. Life is all about learning and progressing so that we can become better people. Without all of our life experiences we would remain the same, unlearned, stuck in the same position we were yesterday or the year before. When I think I have life hard or question why this is happening to me I just have to sit back and put EVERYTHING into perspective, and appreciate the lessons that will be learned from the "hard time" or challenge ahead of me. I'm to the point where I can be Thankful for the challenge after it has passed, but I'm still struggling with being thankful during the challenge! Life is all about Perspective.... It is what we make it out to be! I'm choosing to keep it as positive as possible!
