My cat Tiger has made it his mission to ensure I heal, most likely desiring a return to more attention to his needs. I woke this morning to his purring. He slept last night above my head. I woke in peace, wondering why it is so hard to appreciate and stay with the peace that is here. I slept without pain, the first time in three weeks and a day. I wake now to beauty, wanting to keep this place of peace even as I know letting go means flow and the fullness each moment can spring.
You make every day a special day just by being you, and I like you just the way you are. - Fred Rogers, “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood”
