"Sassness" ... I seem to have lost you, temporarily.
I think it was somewhere between the piles of unfiled paperwork in my (hah) meditation room... or did it fly out the window one night that I was up for a 3 O'clock feeding?
I do know that when I don't take the time to care for the Sass Monster with the proper love, attention and watering that it does tend to wilt a little.
Poor, neglected, Sassiness. How can I rectify this and bring you back into my life, where you belong?
Let's take a few deep breaths. Step back and have a birds-eye view of the situation.
It's not gone for good, the Sassafrass. It is a more delicate creature than you'd think, taking a quick look. Under the strong, solid surface are quivering butterflies awaiting their release.
Shhh shhh now, reach out your hand oh so delicately. Here she is, coming in for a landing.
