Elliot has a classmate that just recently had to get glasses. Well I didn't realize that you can already be teased for such things in first grade but apparently you can. So his little buddy has been having a rough time of it at school. After experiencing the situation first hand and then talking to the little boys mom I thought I should probably talk to Elliot about it. I didn't think he was part of the problem, however I wanted to make sure he was being a good buddy.
So here is how the conversation went....
Me- Elliot is your buddy having a hard time with his glasses?
Elliot- Some of my friends tease him.
Me-(The question I wasn't sure I wanted the answer to) Have you been teasing him?
Elliot- No way Mom it hurts his feelings you know.?
Me-I know Elliot, but how do you feel about his glasses?
Elliot-(The reply I will never forget)Mom Jesus doesn't care about glasses why would I?
Elliot- And plus Mom I want to be just like Jesus.
Needless to say I stopped the conversation for two reasons, one because I was crying and two because somehow he is already learning to follow Jesus in a way that I only hope that I do.
I wish it was so easy as an adult to have that type of faith, that matter of fact faith. To be so untainted by the world that your faith can be as simple as it should be. I am so thankful for this little boy his heart is amazing, he teaches me daily how to be the person I want to be!
I know I haven't had many pics lately I will try to get some this weekend.
