"Some of the world's greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible." - Doug Larson
I'm not suggesting that my son isn't smart. But I am suggesting that to him, at this moment in his life he has the potential to accomplish whatever he sets his mind to.
In so many ways I wish I could keep him here forever. In the place where he does not yet know he is "different", the place where he hasn't been "labeled", or told he will have difficulties, in the place where he isn't shy, where he waves at every passerby-er, and asks for five from anyone who dares to make eye contact. The place in which he boldly shakes people's hands, and doesn't realize they're staring, or whispering when he walks away. I pray every day for God to fill him with boldness and a confidence in who he is meant to be, an assurance of who he is made in the image of, and the strength to get through the days when none of it makes sense.
