An Old Soul

As parents, we hear our children talk all the time.  Today's reminds me that I need to take the time to truly listen so I don't miss moments like this.

Jack was watching the snow fall heavy outside our window.  He had been quietly watching for a long time.  He says without turning away from the view, "Sometimes the snow makes me cry"  I asked him why and he replied, "It's beautiful"

The beauty of that thought process makes me cry.  Happy tears for a boy that I wasn't sure would ever talk.
