“I Just Want to Rest!”

This is J doing her version of the “Pop and Lock.” Competent dancers may think this is a simple move, but I know better. It’s not that easy to isolate the shoulder muscles and make the perfect little “pop.” (Tip from J: “Your head has to be stable.”)  J’s dance moves are like her perfectly curled eyelashes: they did not come from me.

J was down for her rest period this afternoon. We were watching a Disney movie. I broke out into a little jig. (Koreans are the Irish of Asia, after all.)
M:   J, am I a good dancer?
J:   avoids eye contact
M:   Am I?
J:   sighs
M:   Do you think I’m a good dancer?
J:   I’m just trying to rest!

One thought on ““I Just Want to Rest!”

  1. Michelle,
    I want you to know that Eric and I will be praying for both of you as parents, and for Juliana, that she will not hurt. Your words are so raw yet so elegant and Juliana is so blessed to have parents like you. She is a very brave little girl and you are very brave mommy. I pray for healing in your soul and for peace during this precious time you have left. May God bless you through this time.
    Numbers 6:24-26
    The Lord bless you, and keep you;
    The Lord make His face shine on you,
    And be gracious to you;
    The Lord lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.
