Putting Things into Perspective

My wife went in for some testing and everything is OK, but as she was waiting apprehensively for her results, she spotted a little girl around 7 with a bald head, smiling pushing around an I.V. stand, taking a walk with her Mom.

She also saw a smaller child asking a lady why she was here? The lady said “she was here for her husband”, and after the repeated questions by the innocent girl of why, why, why, she answered “it’s because they have to remove my husbands cancer”.

As the saying goes, “There is ALWAYS some one worse off than you”.
Somehow, my wifes apprehension was put into perspective.
