We all are faced with trials and tribulations at some point in our lives. The magnitude , of course, varies from soul to soul and some folks' trials pale in comparison to others. It all depends on ones' point of view and attitude.
My Mother faced numerous cancer issues throughout her life, she lost her twin brother and also young children. But throughout all her life she took these trials head on and never lost faith. She forever was worried about everyone around her and never once was concerned about herself. She simply soldiered on without looking back. I've tried to learn from her example, though I will never live up to it.
We are currently facing some life changing health issues in our immediate household. We kind of have to laugh it off and tell ourselves that "Now it's time to pay for all the healthy years we've been blessed with".  As serious as these issues are, we look around us and see others with much more dire situations. So, there again, it depends on ones' point of view and attitude. Just have to take things on one day at a time and one step at a time. Don't ask "why us?" but be thankful for what we have and what is ahead. I don't mean this in the material aspect, but rather in the spiritual aspect. Life has been good to us. We just now have a few "bumps in the road" to contend with. No matter how tough ones' situation becomes, others can be envious.

I hope things get better. Health issues are one thing that you can't just go out to the shop and fix...
