Put into perspective....

I feel awful. I've been whining, bitching, and moaning about a delay in picking Kevin up. I have just had a slap in the face regarding my selfish ramblings and I feel guilty as hell. One of the women from my agency's board just got her 2nd KO at over 8 weeks for each one in PGN. It brought tears to my eyes to see that post and gave me a huge wake up call to be grateful at Kevin's relatively smooth process.

I'm so sorry.

Just when you think you are at the end of your rope, something happens to remind you that it's not all that bad.

We all have moments like this...when we are so outraged by how our process is going and then realize that it could be worse.

At least we both know that we are out of PGN and all we have to wait for is this new DNA test and PINK. It's not going to be much longer.

There is so much survivor's guilt in this process when you see others having a worse time of it than is okay to feel awful for them and for you!

I think we've all had that awful moment when we realize that we've been petty. It's not a pleasant realization, but it does help keep things in perspective.

Glad I made ya smile and feel better about the 2nd DNA, Tam.

I felt equally horrible about S's post on the board. I did my fair share of bitching during my two (relatively) easy processes. Drew was home at 4.5 months, if you can imagine. But her situation and that of a few others on the board really is enough to make you sit back and be grateful.

This realization just might help you get through the next few weeks. Don't beat yourself up, though. If someone hit both of us with a baseball bat and it bruised your arm but broke mine, it doesn't mean that your arm doesn't hurt!
