Purple Day

There are so many proud moments from Purple Day.

First...Warner explaining to a new friend why he there is a purple brain on his t shirt. As only a 7yr old brother can explain about "tricky brains" and seizures. sit at the back of the classroom & witness my sweet, usually shy 5yr old stand beside his teacher....well, lean on her knees & sometimes melt into her......witness Rhett sharing why he has a purple brain on his tshirt, what the purple world pin is for, "tricky brain", "wiggly hand", purple means Epilepsy"....and hand out purple balloons to his classmates.

A surreal moment.
A moment filled with pride.
A moment filled with the heartache that its just wrong that this is Rhett's reality.
A moment filled with gratitude that he can share with his Kinder class.
A moment that "warms my heart"

Spread the Purple Love!

  1. I love the idea of purple balloons for classmates. Somehow a child telling his own story seems all the more precious.

  2. looks like a great day. Two very handsome fellas ---- gram
