My daughter had a cold over the weekend with a lingering runny nose. It kept her up a lot one night, and we've used a lot of tissues.
My husband and I are sad for our little girl because it's always hard when kids are sick, especially if they can't tell you what's wrong.
Then I talked with someone else who mentioned their same-age daughter was throwing up all weekend and had a fever over 100 degrees.
I felt better about my daughter's cold, just needed a little perspective.
When things seem bad, it can help to realize how much worse it could be. It's good to remember to be thankful for what you have and grateful for what you don't have.
