It was a heart-wrenching cry. The type of cry that you will cry along too.
We went for breakfast this morning. Took a walk to the hawker center that passed a government kindergarten. We saw a class was marching to their teacher's command "One, two, three, four ..."
Suddenly, Jonathan started tearing and became upset.
While crossing the road, he was unhappy. Kept pouting his lips and his eyes looking sad.
After crossing the road, we took him to one quiet corner and wiped his face. H was getting upset because he didn't want Jonathan to cry big time and start having secretion. We thought he didn't want to be there but it was not. Finally, we realised that he was upset because of the children.
Anyway, we talked and consoled him and he was ok. Had breakfast and then we came back home.
He continued the day, watching television, listening to music and took his nap.
When he woke up, he started tearing and crying.
Most of the time I will refrain from asking him questions that will make him cry even more.
But today, with my gut feeling, I asked him the following questions:
"Are you still thinking about the children this morning?"
"Why do they make you cry? Is it because you want to walk just like them?"
"Yes." and he continued to cry loudly.
I cried with him.
That evening, I was an emotional wreck. It was bad timing that I was expecting a guest but I couldn't cancel it at the last minute.
Jonathan is beginning to show his emotions more lately. Now I know why he's been asking to listen to some healing songs lately and kept asking us to repeat them. I believe he wants a miracle to happen.
H prayed for him before he slept. I prayed that today's incident will not affect him deeply again.
Lord, hear the prayers and cries of Jonathan.
