Fitting in

Saturday, August 15, 2009

My son was born with a birthmark on his face. It is called a nevus. It looked like a black eye. When he was 3 years old he realized this was different and I found him standing on the sink with a wash rag trying to wash it off. He says mommy mommy wash it off. It is hard watching your children try to fit in and getting hurt. It is hard as adults to try to fit in too.

    My sons has some serious medical issues and is some times hard to understand when he talks. I know how it feels it see their little hearts break. He has two older brothers so a lot of older kids stick up for him. We always told him it doesn't matter what others say. He is a gift from God and God doesn't make anything ugly or wrong. beauty is in his heart. He could be perfect and not be beautiful. I also found that if I told other kids about Joshua's problems other kids excepted things better because they understand. They could look past the difference because they had knowledge.

    You fit in just fine...so does your son...we all carry with us something to make us special...I have psoriasis...and never felt like I fit in either...but, in the broad seam of it all...I fit in too...I once read that we all have our crosses to carry...and we do..bless us all.

    you are so right about what a harsh society we live in and being anything less than perfect makes you fair game for thoughtless, unkind people to say what ever they want to you. we are all different as you know and i am the last person to say i have a thick skin. one day when i weighed a little more than i do now a customer where i work asked me when my baby was due, i thought i would die, but instead i made excuses for being fat and all i had been through to reach the point i was at. when she left i beat up myself more for thinking i owed a nobody an explanation of my weight status. so stand up for yourself and teach your son to look high and reach for the stars we are all just people and none of us is really better than anyone else. good luck
