but...... I'm starting to feel like I'm in this on my own. I love talking to everyone through my blog, but it just doesn't replace a big HUG in person or having my son the opportunity to interact with someone else with the same challenges.
We attended Vacation Bible School tonight. I asked the coordinator to put any children with type 1 or celiac disease in my group so I could assure their parents that they would be in good hands.
Guess what! There weren't any.
Yes, that's a great thing, but I think Andrew is feeling alone in this journey as well. It would be so nice to have someone that he could relate to.
Seeing his group sitting together anxiously awaiting their yummy snack of jello with gummy worms, Andrew had to pull out his roasted almonds and 10 calorie juice box. It kills me that he always has to be different than everyone else. It automatically sets him apart.
I did surprise him with an Andie's Candy in his snack bag. I was secretly hoping that one of the other kids would be jealous of him for having something different than them.
This is turning into a me, me selfish post, but it's honestly how I feel this evening. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to attend VBS and our relationship with the Lord is more important than anything including being different from everyone else. It just hurts sometimes.....
