But someone made a comment the other day that has stuck with me as a most memorable moment in this journey.
We were checking out at Walgreens and the young lady behind the counter looked me in the eyes and said, "Wow, what a brave little boy you have there".
How awesome is she?
I share this because she is such a positive role model for fostering acceptance and compassion. Stick that comment in your repertoire for the next time you're wondering whether or not you should approach someone.
After giving her the quick story (yes, yes - Lindsay Coil IS capable of keeping it brief, believe it or not!) she said, "Rock on, Little Buddy, you're a stud."
I completely agree.
