"Either way, the other day at church I heard someone use the word amazing to describe the parents of a special-needs child. The word amazing is often used to describe such parents, who can find it difficult to swallow because it feels a little lofty and frankly untrue. It's a word that applies pressure, even as it attempts to indicate respect."
I am working on my ability to recieve compliments better, but this one is always hard for me. I definitely do not always feel "amazing." I know you mean well and, like I said, I'm working on it, but I would much prefer you ask me questions. We'll just sit down together underneath the pedastal and have a chat. It's easier to hear you and connect with you when we're standing side by side.
