Such a Sweetie!

Yesterday I watched a friend's child while she was out and about. Her son is two and has autism. He was asleep when he got here and slept for the first hour. Every once in awhile he would cough in his sleep and Libby would go over to him and say, "K? K?" It was so cute. When he did wake up, he was very scared. I held him for about half an hour while Libby showered him with kisses and patted his back. He finally fell back to sleep so I laid him in Libby's crib. He woke up and cried for about a minute more. Libby immediately ran out to the living room and grabbed her pink blanket and pushed it into the crib with him. I almost cried. That blanket is her most prized posession and she was willing to give it to a little boy she'd never met before just because he was upset. I thank the Lord that my little girl has such a big heart!

Isn't it amazing how quickly they respond to someone in need. Their tenderness is so sweet. Enjoy the moment.
