Nature, once again, shows the value of loving contact during those crucial early years.
I’m writing this at 7.45am on the 30th. Coincidentally, Jean and I were chatting in bed about an hour ago about this ‘touchy – feely’ stuff. This was a bed having four dogs on it! One of those, Hazel, was laying alongside my left leg just sucking up me stroking her head and tummy. Jean and I were musing that for animals and humans, how we are touched by our parents, especially our mother, during those first few years of growing up has profound implications for how we as adults respond to being touched and hugged.
So then I opened up my mail box and there was this sent by Cynthia Gomez serving as a wonderful reminder of the power of touch. Thanks Cynthia, great timing!
There is nothing like Mom’s lap no matter who you are. This is precious !!!!
