if I’m daring to speak behalf on all of us (and sophie), I’d hazard a guess and say that we all have friends that we’re very close to. so close to, in fact, that we literally feel when there’s something wrong with that friend. or we get this inkling like we should call a friend, only to get a call from them minutes later. it’s a weird phenomena but an important part of living and communicating. we need each other, whether we like it or not.
sophie is EXTREMELY good at sensing how I feel at all times. if she hears that my voice just the tiniest bit off, or if I cough too much, or sniffle, she’s on me before I can blink. lately, I noticed she’s been insisting on sitting on my lap whenever my stomach starts to hurt. my belly is sensitive to say the least, but it’s odd to me that she can literally sense my hurt and go to try and sooth it. interestingly, whenever she insists on being on my lap when my stomach hurts, I start to feel better.
so, if you sense that someone has a need, go try to fill it. be a good friend and a good human.
