sweet girl

Sweet Saschy-girl was teething something fierce last night and today. Feverish, wanting to be held close, no appetite, nursing desperately to try to find comfort, and sensitive to even the dog tail brushing her cheek. Poor girl. We can’t even fathom that kind of pain, I don’t think.

So, no Tuesday date with Natalie and Echo. No knitting group. No phone calls. No clean up. One handed catch with Elliott while holding her close.

Once I adjusted, Oh, it’s like THIS today, our day became one long, tender embrace.

What a relief when we stop expending energy to change What Is.

    Accepting the ”bad” days really makes SUCH a difference! The day becomes sweet, tender, sympathetic, and loving. Rather than the torture it sometimes was. Even when I have no idea what it causing the behaviour, it helps to just accept it.
