Look who Cheryl brought home. Calvin and Hobbes.

At first, I was very skeptical about Calvin and Hobbes. They would playfully bounce and chase each other in the lawn and garden, and I was afraid they would hurt themselves by falling off the rock wall. They tried to include me but they made me nervous and I could only watch. Sometimes their spirited activity was too much for me so I’d go off and do what I’ve done my whole life.

Then finally, I realized Calvin and Hobbes were okay. I could see how Cheryl loves them just as much as she loves me. I made the effort to respond to the times they try to connect with me. I started to participate in their escapades and discovered it was a glorious time. I still do my own thing, but I also share time and happy energy with Calvin and Hobbes. I now understand when Cheryl reminds me that we all are helping and watching out for one another while discovering the newness of love and life.
