Crazy Hair Day

Posted May 15 2013 12:00am

Today is crazy hair day at our school and for most kids and parents, it’s just a fun day to make your hair look as wild and crazy as possible, but for this momma, it’s a little more than that. You see with Jackson’s AMC, he has to wear braces, walk in walker, and lots of other things other kids don’t have to do. So, it would be easy for him to say “no, I don’t want to do crazy hair day, I get enough attention drawn to me, look at all the extra stuff I have”. But that’s not who he is, he wants the lime green walker, the loudest shoes we can find, the crazy hair, the lime green shorts, the neon shirt, the Ninja Turtle watch (that’s bigger than his arm). He doesn’t mind being noticed for anything, whether it is AMC related or not. He doesn’t let his disability define him, he wants to stand out in a fit in world. He knows who he is and who’s he is. Every morning on the way to school we speak scripture and positive affirmations over our day, one of my favorite scriptures we repeat is “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Jackson shows me that he believes that with his whole heart every day. How much different would each of our lives be if we believed that with child like faith?
