There are times when unfolding events on this small round blue and green planet can feel really stressful.
Oh so stressful.
The news about, well, basically everything, sounds so grim.
There are micro-particles on the loose everywhere and they aren’t very friendly.
Even worse, the latest fashion trend sweeping the ranks of your large shell-less planet-mates involves taking a shell-sized piece of fabric and strapping it over half their faces.
With all these happenings, it can feel all too tempting some days to retreat into the relative safety of your quiet, dark, comforting shell and just stay there.
But as soon as you try to retreat, your large shell-less rescue mama comes looking for you.
She brings you all your favorite delicacies.
She tries to talk you out from under your fern, telling you she loves you so much and she needs you and the world needs you and you matter.
And you see the love in her eyes and hear the love in her voice and you believe her.
So even when it is hard and scary and you would really rather not, you venture back out again.
You do it because what the world needs now is “cuteness” and “brave” and you happen to have an extra-huge heaping helping of both.
Pearl, Malti, Bruce & their mama
