Taking a Moment for Tender Mercies
We’ve been battling coughs over here lately. That, combined with the fact that we’ve been testing Joseph’s tolerance for wheat with a Sun Chip a day, has led to some flareups of eczema, complete with blood all over the sheets when Joseph scratched in the night.
But, I’m reminded to keep counting my blessings. It’s fall now, so I can put Joseph’s shorts away and keep him from getting access to the backs of his knees. We have so much more knowledge now than people did even just decades ago for how to handle this. We have medicines that reduce the itching (though Joseph has taken to screaming when I put the creams on). We just went the whole summer with very few flareups.
Silver linings. Little things that get us through the hard times.
