It may have just been a band-aid,
and it kept
dirty out of his little wound,
and he may or may not
have admired it ALL day long!
But, this little band-aid
did more then we ever dreamed,
it helped my son heal.
This is the first band-aid that Elijah
has allowed on an owie
since he came home 8 months ago.
(possible his first band-aid ever)
and let me tell you -
our little dare devil
has needed many band-aids in the last 8 months.
But, this owie was the one.
The one where he let me help him.
The one that made him proud to wear.
The one that began him adding band-aids to
his body day after day.
And the band-aid that started him talking about
many of his other hurts.
You see my son,
has lots of visual scars from his past,
but he has even more emotional scars -
and we are sooooo happy that he is
beginning to let down his guard,
and trust us with what hurts him!
Thank you Jesus!
