When my kids scrape their knee or get a paper cut, I tell them, "God made our bodies to heal. Your scrape/cut is starting to heal right now. Isn't that wonderful?" I sort of give them a toddler and preschool-friendly explanation of hemoglobins and all that. But seriously, I am thankful that God created our bodies with the ability to heal. I was able to take off Owen's steri-strips today and it was an amazing difference from what his little head looked like 6 days ago!
It may seem like such a small thing, but to his mommy, that deep cut was a big deal 6 days ago! And I am very thankful that God healed my little boy's head!
