Come on babe, you know for sure at the back of your mind : "This too shall pass" . Haven't we all seen bad times and continue to see them; but then, fortune favors the bravest. Build your strength and courage and the only way to do it is by giving. God has his own way of correcting things - he asks the lame to run, the blind to help others see, the beggars to share and the frail/sick ones to help the healthy/strong ones. But when we do that, you see things dramatically shift - like in no time , and the whole bad experience that felt like an eternity seems like a blip in the time line of life.
