SOMEONE has Eczema and managed Beach Holidays

The boy in the bottom right-hand corner is our nephew. :)
This is a photo I took at our last trip to the beach.  As I'm sure many others do, I love when the sun rays come through the clouds.  This was a particularly striking moment, as the weather had been dark and cloudy, but then a hole opened and the beautiful light shone through.  This picture is a photographic metaphor for our life with food allergies, eczema and asthma.  Sometimes it might seem dark and the conditions inhospitable, but with some patience, and an eye for the "silver lining", you will soon see the rays of light shining down.  My daughter is particularly adept at helping me to see the sunshine through the clouds.  No matter what we're doing, no matter what the weather, my daughter is always in a good mood, happy to just be and enjoy whatever we're doing.  She has her tantrum-filled moments, don't get me wrong, but overall, she enjoys life and reminds me to look up at the sky.

Mei of asked if I would write a guest post on handling vacations with eczema (and food allergies and asthma).  I was honored and grateful for the opportunity, as I've been wanting to share about our beach trip, but it's on my long list of posts to get to...This gave me the focus I needed to get this one done.  Please hop on over to her site to read my guest post.

Also be sure to check out her comics from the series "101 Things That Moms with Eczema Child Do Differently".
