“All I can do is sit with them.” – Vivi, Final Fantasy IX
Life is hard. There are days where you just don’t want to get out of bed because you know it’s going to be extra difficult. Sometimes you do get out of bed and you’re ready for whatever’s going to come your way that day…up until you aren’t. No particular reason why, just suddenly…you can’t.
I’ve had those days. A lot. One winter I had them every single day.
So my eldest niece and eldest nephews would just sit with me. Sometimes one of them would run a hand through my hair. They’d take turns doing that and it really helped.
So today, I’m thankful for people who will just sit with you.
Look for the original Thankful Thursday, it’s always a good thing to be thankful for your faith, whether it’s in other people or in your religion.
