empathy delivery

It’s been a bit stormy around these parts lately. Not just the weather either. Seems there has been a cosmic synchronicity and all households have seen some feisty turbulence. So I hereby deliver some empathy to any and all:

  • that have not left the house for three days straight because their two year old does not want to go outside in the cold and does not want to wear a coat
  • that do not want to wear coats, be they two or thirty something, because it is not fair that it is already so cold
  • that are feeling FURIOUS watching their older child physically harm their younger child
  • that are not enjoying the presence of a younger sibling that plays with the toys, makes loud noises, bumps the chair they are sitting on, etc.
  • that wonder if their wife/husband/partner is the right person for them
  • that miss their wife/husband/partner and wish she/he would come home soon
  • that have the flu
  • that are pregnant and feeling tired, emotional, frustrated, or all of the above
  • that are working so hard at raising their children and are not feeling like the heroic warriors they are
  • that are tired and want to go to bed but still have things they need to get done
  • that are feeling insecure, or lonely, or sad
  • that are criticizing their body, and/or food choices
  • that want to be with their kids more than they are
  • that are having a hard time with squabbling children
  • that are worried about money
  • that want something that is not available to them

I love you. And here’s to a sunnier weekend.
