somewhere i have a video of my daughter sitting on the floor in the living room with her on top of a stack of books on the coffee table and reading to her out loud from a book about how to care for mice. serena was watching her and listening intently. i can’t find the video but it was the most enchanting thing i’d ever witnessed.
did you know it’s common for a mouse to kill itself trying to break free from a trap? did you know they also scream in agony and terror when stuck?
it’s important to be discerning in identifying who wants to feed you versus trap you. traps cause a slow and painful death. when we feel trapped we are not so different from a mouse.
keep your ears open for those that scream in the muted reverberations of whispers.
it is in helping others to be free that we too soar
