As the fall athletic season comes to a close, I know I am going to miss the soccer moms from my daughter’s team. You share the agony and the ecstasy of wins, losses, injury and high-light reel plays. But as one door closes, another door opens and I now have my football moms.
My football moms know that my son has a gluten intolerance and they are looking out for him…what a treasure! I received an email saying that one family was going to provide sandwiches for the guys for the bus ride home after Saturday’s game. They wanted to make sure the celiac had something, so I got him a ham and cheese sub on a Schar roll.
Ironically, I forgot to tell my son that there would be a gluten-free sandwich for him. It slipped my mind completely leading up to the game. It was marked “GF Ham & Cheese” but my new sideline friend said she would hand it to him personally. How awesome is that? My son would have probably been fine just eating potato chips and drinking a Gatorade on the bus ride home if he had not found his sandwich. But, it is so great when “the village” it takes to raise kids helps out!
