So, you think YOU got it bad?

As the title phrases, some of us tend to think we have the absolute worst life ever.  There are times when I join the ranks of pity-party-throwers and do the whole "woe is me" thing.  The last few months for us have been somewhat of a struggle.  We didn't think it would be this hard when I quit my job to stay home to care for the baby.  The funny thing is that when my husband was making half of what he makes now (granted that was 10 years ago) we were doing a-okay.  I guess now we have more to show, though.  Right?  I mean, we have a home, cars (even if not all are driveable), our health and two more kiddos.  Oh yeah.  That.  I guess the two extra kids do make a difference.  Plus all of the debt incured since then doesn't help.  BTW, I hate credit cards.  Just thought I'd let you know that. 

All that said, I do want to point out that I have three beautiful and healthy kiddos.  Sean and I would actually like to have one more, but we both have that what if that tugs at us.  What if there is something wrong with the baby before it's born?  What if something is found to be wrong once the baby gets here?  We had small scares, but never anything actually happen like that.  I still worry about my sons heart being that they called in the pediatric heart specialist and did the whole EKG thing right after he was born.  I really feel he is okay, though.  Eight years and we've never had a problem.  I do want to point out that other people are not so lucky.  Many already know of little Stellan and his fight with SVT.  Please say a quick prayer for him.  God is listening.  I just hope He has it in His plans to save Stellan.  I'm still praying for you and for your family.
