These past few weeks have been very hard. I was to the point that I just wanted to give up on the kids diet. I am not seeing many changes or progress and it just does not seem worth it.
Addi is growing and I can not get enough food down her to keep her satisfied. I feel for her. I just want to pitch it all and go back to the GFCF diet. It was sooooo much easier!

I had to go to the store this morning because we were out of our staples. I was determined to get something for Addi that she would like. I was going to get salami. I did not care what was in it. She needed some variety. I picked up the "best" out of the lot and proceeded to the bacon section. As I was on my way I passed the new Hormel Naturals. Guess what...they have an uncured salami!
So today in the grocery, once again, God took my hand and showed me that he is going before me to provide for these children. I was at the end of my rope and he pulled me back up.
Salami is such a small thing, but today it made my day. (and Addi's. She loved it. Ate most of the package.)

I'm so happy you found the salami!!! I'm sorry it's been rough recently. Even I get frustrated at times with my diet, and it's nothing compared with what you guys are doing.

Thanks for sharing Jennie. I am praying for you guys! I am sure it is hard to see improvements on a daily basis, but I just wanted to let you know I saw great improvements in the nursery on Sunday.
