A Not-Unexpected Delay in Plans

“Most of the things we need to be most fully alive never come in busyness. They grow in rest.” ~  Mark Buchanan

 

There has been a lot of resting going on in our house just now.

Harry, home from the vet and minus his big broken molar, needs plenty of rest. He’s content to lie on the couch or the bed or the floor, or wherever else I am. He’s sore, and tired and not quite right.

I’ve been resting too.

I’m on new treatment for lyme, and it has knocked me for a six. I can feel it working, but it’s left me unable to get my head off the pillow for more than an hour at a time.

So Harry and I are resting together.

There is no mad running through the paddocks saying hello to the cows, there are no chasing games or chewing on bones for young Harry.

There is no work or being upright much for me.

Everything will wait. The work, the games, the life, the fun – it will all be there when we are ready and feeling better. Healing is big enough work for us, and it’s taking all our time.

For now we will nap, sleep and rest, keeping each other company. It’s not so bad. Cuddles and friendship and love always make us heal faster. And this bed is very soft, and the pillows smell of sunshine and lavender…
