As Naomi has gotten older, she has developed a tender heart. Daddy or mommy scolding her for something can send her to tears pretty easily, but lately songs that touch her little heart will also send her into tears. I understand this, as more than a few songs have caused tears to stream down my face. Some songs just bring emotions to the surface.
Today, we were on our way to meet up with some other homeschoolers for a day at the park. Other than the fog, it was a decent day here in Central IL and we needed to take full advantage and get everyone outside for some fresh air and outdoor fun. On the way, we were listening to a local radio station which plays Christmas music all day this time of the year. One of my favorite Christmas songs came on the radio and within a few minutes Lili announced that Naomi had tears on her cheeks. I’ve had to fight back the tears most times I’ve heard this song too, so I can’t say I blame her at all for getting emotional.
My tender-hearted little girl feels deeply and that’s a good thing.
