Every night, Grace goes to bed with her CD player on. She listened to Christmas music through June (when Mommy took away the Christmas CD's)... but right now Grace is listening to Christian kids praise music. The CD player is on all night, and I can't tell you how many times I just want to turn that thing off. But she loves it - so it stays on.
Most mornings, Grace ends up in Autumn's room while I struggle to get out of bed. Sometimes they throw toys at each other, but most often, Grace ends up singing songs to Autumn. Usually Grace just makes songs up and Autumn claps along. But last week, I woke up to the sound of Grace singing praise music to Autumn. I can't remember what song it was, but Grace knew all the words. And Autumn loved it.
I hope that in 10, 20 or even 30 years from now, those songs, specifically those words are still on my little girl's heart.
