Compassion and gentleness

Posted on Oct 14, 2009 by in Courtney | 3 comments

I think I always tied these two traits together. Until I met Courtney. She is trully compassionate. It comes naturally to her. She genuinly cares about people and their feelings. She is very affectionate. She will share her last bite of dessert with you. However, she is not gentle. This is a trait she has yet to learn. If you are not careful or if you are her baby sister – watch out because her loving maybe a little rough. Now if we can just direct her compassion to show gentleness to those she loves.
Any thoughts?


  1. All I can say is persistence & keep showing her how. Some times David wants to hug Eve around the neck which is not good if she wants to keep breathing. I’ve also noticed that some times she doesn’t want to be hugged & will yell very loudly if David is hugging on her when she doesn’t want it.


  3. Sydney Marin is the same way. So compassionate, but when she loves it is with all her might, literally. I like to think of it as loving passionately.
