A Scary Time!
It was a scary time On the Bog! Lightening struck, and thunder shook the very walls of Starry Cottage!
Dark skies roiled. Heavy rain blew and blustered, drenching everything in sight and obscuring the usually chipper sights of the Bog. All the creatures were silent and still, hiding in their homes and shelters, hoping for the storm to pass quickly.
Inside Starry Cottage with a candle lit in the window for hope and light, Kat, Bear, and Wogs huddled closely together, holding each other tight.
Kat (shuddering in response to a loud, nearby lightening strike): I’m scared.
Wogs (hugging Kat tighter and gently stroking Bear’s head for comfort): Me, too. But it’s scary outside, so that’s normal.
Kat (cuddling in closer to Wogs and petting Bear with calming love): I’m so grateful we have each other!
Wogs (loving Kat and Bear big time with gentle comforting hugs): Me, too!
Bear (loving Kat and Wogs so big and thankful for their comfort in such a scary time, snuggled deeply into Wogs lap and felt calm with Kat's gentle touch): <3
Scary Times Happen ...
It would be great if scary times didn’t happen, but they do. They can throw us off-center and disturb our calm. They can bring tremendous upset and upheaval. We can struggle to navigate these difficult times.
But navigate we must. One step at a time. One foot in front of the other. One breath at a time.
Having loved and caring ones to support us and hold us is so important!
They help us be a little braver, be a bit calmer, and help us find the strength we need to get through the scary time with less soul scorching … less fear … an in a way that helps us feel not alone, … and simply better.
Nourishing positive relationships with others, growing love with friends and partners, and investing in meaningful connections all take time to flourish, but these bonds are gifts in our lives! They brighten our days! We have goodness to share! Support to lend! Hugs to hold us!
Together, we celebrate the good times, and comfort each other in the scary and difficult times!
Together, we make life happier, healthier, PINKer, kinder, more loving, more caring, … simply filled with more goodness!
I am filled with gratitude for this shared time with you! Thank you for being here with me as we navigate the good days and the bad days! Thank you for sharing your brightness with the world!
May any scary times you face pass quickly and without lasting debilitating impact. May you have the love and support you need to hold you, comfort you, and guide you safely back to brighter days! May you always feel my love holding your heart!
