These are truly beautiful legs. (Rachel's, not mine!)
I really believe that life is about balance. Male & Female, Good & Bad, Happy & Sad, Summer & Winter. You can't appreciate the good things fully if you never experience the bad. Sometimes we are extremely fortunate and we can learn from other people's experiences. I can see the family who lost their mother and mourn for them while holding my own kids a little tighter. In comparison my own struggles are easy to bear.
