DJ came walking into the front room. He looked a bit defeated. His body language told me right away something was wrong. He and his brother had been playing very nicely for quite some time. Running around, giggling and laughing. But now he was distressed.
Come here Buddy. What's wrong?
Do you need a hug and quick cuddle?
Yep. (scrambles onto my lap and snuggles in)
So, what's causing you grief, Lovebug?
Well, I need some couragement Mommy. My whole life is full of icicles.
Ya...Anderson and I are playing icicle course and I keep running into icicles. It is soooooo hard.
Icicles, hmmmm, icicles... Oh! Obstacles....Can I help you out?
Well, I think a good hug is all I need to beat all the icicles in my life Mommy. All done. Thanks! Bye!
As DJ jumps out of my bear hug. I am happy that he has rebounded and is now his energetic-self. Suddenly, I am hit with a wave sadness. Right now, a mother's hug can melt any icicle he may face - and that is a good thing... I can only hope my hugs and "couragement" can help him through all and any icicles he may face through his life.
