Sometimes, I see my daughter doing everything she possibly can to appear “normal.” She really doesn’t want her classmates to know that she has Dyslexia. She’s just not quite ready to fully embrace the fact that this is part of who she is. And that’s OK; she’s only eight.
But as I journey with her, I try to point out to her all of the things that make her amazing. Some of these things, these gifts, are because she has Dyslexia. She thinks differently; she sees differently. Her perspective is unique, creative, and beautiful.
One day, my prayer is that she will recognize the amazing that God has placed within her … and let that amazing shine.
