Precious Moment at Preschool

Yesterday when I picked Caroline up from preschool, her teacher stopped me and wanted to tell me about 'what happened.' She started to tear up as she began to tell me....... As a classmate of Caroline's was on the floor (he must have fallen and must have been crying), she went over to him, touched him on the shoulder, got on her knees, put her hands in a praying posture and began an audible prayer. The teacher said that she didn't understand any of the words except for 'amen' at the end. Then, Caroline got up and resumed playing. I'm constantly amazed at this blessing of a daughter. I had to shed a tear, too, when I heard the story.

Had a Bad Night's Sleep

Last night was a tough night for Caroline. She finally fell asleep (after rocking and bottle) at around 10:30 me, that is really late for her. Then, at around 12:30 a.m., she woke up crying. Unfortunately, I had not gone to bed yet and as soon as I heard her I went to her room. When I looked down at her I got the very strong feeling that she had a bad dream, OR....perhaps she was dreaming about her life before she became my baby girl. This was a different cry, a sad cry. So, I picked her up and just rocked her for a long time. I repeatedly told her how much I loved her and that she was safe with Momma. At those moments she just looked at me and nodded her head in approval. I tried putting her in bed with me but she was SO restless. Finally, at 3:15 am she decided that she wanted to get back in her bed. This morning she was fine. Oh, to know what's going on in that precious little head of hers.
