Looking out for each other

Bubba had a sleep in this morning. So much so that I had to wake her up so we could get out of the house on time for me to get to work.

Seemingly she woke up concerned for everyone. You okay mumma? she asked when I lifted her warm sleepy body out of bed. Sure Bubba, I’m great, thanks for asking. She lifted one sleepy arm up to push her hair off her face then gave me a kiss and wrapped her lovely little arms around my neck. *Sigh*

As I lay her on my bed so she could have her bottle and I could get her ready for the day she reached out to Beary. Then she did something she rarely does while having her morning bottle: she stopped drinking it. She pulled Beary’s leg to her and gave it a kiss, then went on with drinking her bottle. *Sigh*

A few seconds later she realised that Bella wasn’t in the room. Bella she called. Bella came bounding in and leapt onto the bed, snout to nose. After a giggle at her good morning kiss from Bella, Bubba asked you okay? as she patted Bella’s head. *Sigh*

Finally we made it out the front door. I got into the car having put Bubba in her car seat, and turned around to this.

you okay rabbit

She had tucked Rabbit in under her arm, facing forward but snug in beside her, and was checking that rabbit was okay.

Looking out for each other is easy. It should be easy. And it should be second nature. So check in on people you know today. If you ask how someone is, take the time to listen to their answer and care about what they say.

Let us know how you’re going too. In the comments or send me an email if you’d rather. Christmas can be a tricky time of the year for some people. I had one of those days myself yesterday, so I get it.

If you can help us look out for Cilla and Jessie and help relieve some of the stress for our friend Jodie – and know of anyone who may be able to foster these two beautiful dogs for a couple of months, please get in touch. All details are in this post. It makes me sad how many people we’ve spoken to tell us shelters are already stretched to capacity.

Mumma to Poppy Grace (born January 2011); forever friend to my furry buddies Bella & Bear; love spending time with family & friends, cooking, reading, writing, design & watching trashy TV (when I find time)! I try to perform one random act of kindness each day & think more people should learn a lesson in unconditional love & acceptance from our 4-legged furry friends. This is my journey to motherhood & beyond - single by chance, mother by choice.

    how sweet is your little girl!! a beautiful reminder of how empathy comes naturally to us when we’re young and innocent, and maybe, sadly, the world teaches too many of us to shut it out and be selfish too often when we’re all grown up.

  2. Yup. We’re OK. Thanks for asking!

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake and Mom
