It’s true. My husband now has blue hair.
Don’t get me wrong, though. It’s not that weird ‘old lady blue hair’ from the 70s. This is blatantly blue hair. Cobalt blue. Royal blue. Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year: Classic Blue.
And it was on purpose.
A couple nights ago, our daughter was dying her hair blue. No biggie. She’s had purple hair, orange, green, you name it. The motto in this home is, It’s Only Hair.
So she had some blue dye left over, and asked Stan if she could dye his hair. Without even thinking, he said yes. It wasn’t because he’d always dreamed of having a blue head. I’d wager he’d never even given it a thought. But he made the decision in the blink of an eye.
He did it simply because he loves her and wanted to make her happy. It’s only hair.
And without even realizing it, Stan was putting forth a valuable life lesson for Jardin. He was teaching her to set the bar high for the day when she meets, “The One.” In other words, it’s not just the big important things that count, but the little ones, too. Like the things that make you scream with delight (and boy, did she!). Like the time you and your dad dyed your hair blue together.
Stay healthy and safe through this month of July, and remember, it’s the little things in life that show you care for others. Wear a mask and wash your hands. Easy little stuff like that make a BIG difference in showing others you care.
