Tiny Healers

Maybe it was the walk home from the gym in the pouring rain.  Perhaps it was a symptom of consistently staying up way too late.  Whatever it was, I couldn’t quite identify the root cause.

I was feeling blue today. 

Adrian’s nap-time transitioned into family snuggles with mama bear.  I think my littlest cub dozed off again, and we all stuck together, intertwined like a family pretzel.  As I felt the warmth of precious young skin beside me, I was mended in ways that I didn’t quite know needed repair.

Reminding me that right now is perfect.

Showing me that I am profoundly blessed.

Leaving me open to clearly see the gifts surrounding me.

Tiny healers. Thank you.
