Today was long. Today EVERYBODY needed someone to carry their load.

So at the end of the day and after taking care of everybody else, I lay down exhausted, closed my weary eyes and thought to myself “can’t I at least have one person smile on me today”.

A soft coo and landing on the bed immediately answered my request. Irie rolled on her back, nuzzled my hand with her nose and freely gave her trust in return for me.

Trust. Smile. Peace.
