Recent events at work have caused me to lose faith in humans, total lack of respect and consideration for others and downright selfishness have made me wonder even more about the world we live in.
However, I am so thrilled to have participated in a natural act of kindness and forgiveness that I am somewhat more convinced that decent folk do exist.
This morning, Little Piglet, now nearly 23 months, was unfortunately scratched by our cat Princess. LP was very upset and suffered a superficial wound to her forehead.
This evening, LP was clingy and upset
before bathtime and kept pointing to the bobo on her head and my bedroom where the unfortunate incident had taken place. Recognising her fear, I wanted her to see the cat and overcome her worries as afterall we do all live in the same house.
So I sat down with LP on my knees and my cat next to me, cuddling both of them. Next thing I know, LP is telling Princess that she was hurt from her scratching and was showing her the injury. Then suddenly she lent over and cupped her head in her hands, ever so gently, and landed her a kiss before getting up and going off to play. She had explained her feelings to the cat and offered her forgiveness.
I am astounded that someone not even two can relate in such a way.
