The first bite
Someone bit my baby today. It is that moment that makes you shutter and calls up the lioness within to strike out against anyone who dare lay a hand on my young, innocent cub but of course, I look into the eyes of another young innocent cub and know that it is part of the laws of nature. Life goes on. I know in this moment that I cannot protect her from everything. That knowledge provides me little comfort. It actually creates bigger fears for all the things that await her that serve to harm her. I know I should not stay in this dwelling place for there is good in the world but this is the part of me that has been so well nurtured by my own worrisome father. What lies waiting. Ugh!!!
