19 Jul The Kitten Chronicles: Unbidden
Affection is even sweeter when it comes unbidden. Occasionally, when we are fully engaged in a project, Baby will jump onto the desk and simply step down onto one of our laps. Or she’ll extend herself in a cat-stretch, paws upon our knees, an invitation to be picked up. As we walk through our bedroom, she’ll race up the stairs and wiggle her head out between the railing posts. From time-to-time when we’re on the bed reading, Baby crawls up and lays down along outstretched legs, the perfect cradle for nestling down. It always comes as a welcome surprise. A time to let go of producing a project or even turning to the next page. An invitation to express love and be loved without the forward momentum of life.
