we often forget how good we have it. This poor lady lost her husband, and now may lose her son.

Maybe we can all take a few minutes out of our day to be thankful for what we have, and to say a prayer for Mrs Blanton and her family.

How much pain can a person take? When you read stories like this, one can't help but realize how small sometimes our problems can be compared to other people's. I pray this baby pulls through...he's all his mother has right now.

Thanks Hoagie for sharing this piece!
