My daughter loves to dance.
Last month she won the “best dancer of the year” award at ballet. Despite dancing the ballet show with a cast from hand to shoulder.
At home she moves and dances all the time. So I’ve created a youtube playlist with songs she has done at ballet, songs we sing at church, Misty Copeland dancing and some songs that I think she’ll love.
Like this one.
The first time we watched it she sat still. Which is unusual. Her eyes filled with tears and we both laughed and said “it got a bit dusty in here” (our codeword when we’re watching a movie or something and get emotional).
It was beautiful watching her heart be touched.
The song has been played several times since then. Sometimes she dances, sometimes she sits. But I know that her heart is been touched, every time.
