Today was a bittersweet walk. We met with good friends and walked..
We came across a little fairy bath:
Naturally there was tree climbing
and a happy face
Mother nature at work in every direction
But then there was a bump – a big bump. Two little girls playing on the tree swing bumped heads. And then there were tears from both little girls. But my Rose did not stop. She could feel the wobble of her tooth & the metallic taste of the blood in her mouth.
She was terrified & I had to scoop up my child and take her home. After a gentle bath and many more tears we heard a knock at our front door. Our friends had called by to see how she was. And Rose’s face lit up once more. Her friend stayed for a sweet hour of play, which took Rose’s mind off the blood and the wobbling.
I am so thankful for such thoughtful friends who went out of their way and brought Love to my child.
And mud! oh, the mud!
