It is easy to be negative. The Halloween candy is already out in all the stores and most of it is not safe for dear son. A young friend recently outgrew his peanut allergy. We are so glad for him and his family. But our son seems to be picking up new allergies – not outgrowing anything.
But last week a busy single dad took the time to find an ice cream snack made in a nut free facility – a product I had never seen locally. A mom on the team brought grapes to the game from her peanut-free home. A new Sunday School teacher emailed us before the first class to ask about safe snacks. Son’s peanut free table was overflowing with friends even the first day of school.
Is a peanut allergy irritating to live with? Yes! But this week we feel very blessed for the wonderful folks in our lives. I hope your first couple weeks of school have gone well also.
