I’m a highly sensitive person. I take a lot of things to heart. I cry at the drop of a hat. I’m weepy, a sap if you will. My eyes well up during praise time at church. Sometimes I cry when I watch my daughter sleeping (and then I wonder why she’s so sensitive).
I found this book at a thrift shop today and I started to get teary-eyed after about 3 pages, so I stopped reading and just bought the thing. When I took it home, my husband read it to Evelyn in its entirety. I bawled my eyes out. It’s simple and beautiful and I’ll probably never be able to actually read it to my daughter without getting all choked up.
Do you have a favorite book that you read to your child? Is there one in particular that pulls at your heart strings?
