Ordinary joy

My daughter has a natural ability to appreciate music and it literally, moves her.  It's something inside her that can not be held back when that beat gets going.  I put her in hip-hop dance classes. When she is on her own, and that music moves her from the inside out, she is so free to express herself.

In her classes, well, lets just say she's still growing into herself.  She is not very coordinated.  They go left, she goes right, they move in one direction, she moves in another.

It seriously moves me to tears, tears of joy.  I laugh so hard it makes me cry.  I have no doubt she will improve. To watch her though, being so awful really, but enjoying herself, her freedom, warms my heart.  When I see my own kids, unafraid to be who they are, I feel I have done at least one thing right in this world.
