some moments feel as though the sea lies between us. i see them there, in the distance, longing to be close. emotions overwhelm their tiny existence. they fuss and fight. they push back and rebel. they resist with all their might.
naps all around for tired souls. prayers of peace in the silence. when they wake, it's still there, in the cracks of their brokenness. there is only one thing that will cure this ailment. one thing that will end the funk.
lavish them with unfailing kindness.
works every time.
