I am learning so much about this little girl! She is so compassionate and sweet!
I am starting to think one of her spiritual gifts is compassion and/or healing :)
The other day we were at a friend's house and her little girl go hurt and Neela was very in tune to her, she kept following her around saying, "What's the matter, what's the matter?" and loving on the little girl. This is big for Neela because she typically is in her own little world and has always been more interested in animals than people.
Speaking of animals, she LOVES the cat,,like, borderline obsessed loves our cats!! The other night, after the kids went to bed, Seth saw Neela's hand under the bedroom door and the cat's paw under the door too,,they were holding hands, how sweet! They don't like to be separated. Also, the other day I went to wake her up from her nap and I was gently stroking her cheek to wake her up when I noticed that she was dreaming about THOMAS (the cat)!! She kept saying, "Thomas, Thomas, Thomas" over and over in her dream, hahaha. When she finally did snap out of it and wake up, the first thing she said was, "Okay, where's Thomas?!" She shows so much compassion and responsibility with the cats, but especially Thomas (she *almost never has to be reminded to feed and water him, put him up b4 dinner, etc.).
She is typically very good with her older sister and sometimes seems even older than her. She often takes the "older sibling" role with her and is nurturing with her and looks after her :)
Her favorite story in her little Bible is "The Good Samaritan"! She will search and search the whole book until she finds THAT story! Such a big, loveable heart!
I am very much enjoying learning about my little Nee Nee and helping her grow into her spiritual gifts to advance the KINGDOM!!
