Yes, we do have our rough times when we think our pain or situation couldn't get any worse, but when we look about we can see someone else who makes us aware that things could be very much worse. Does not make your pain any less, nor any less important. Just makes us aware and lets us care more for our fellow man. Best wishes for your sister-in-law.
