This afternoon Abby Sue was sharing with me some of her difficulties with friends at school.
"They whisper about me, they think I'm weird, they make fun of me. They say that I'm annoying."
I was feeling overcome right along with her. At a loss for words I stood quietly trying to think of something to say that would console her little heart.
Ben was listening intently to his sister, with his arms wrapped around me, then turned to Abby and says...
"You are one of a kind."
She grins...then smiles. Looking down at her eclectic skirt...she twirls with confidence.
He is exactly right.
