If your heart hasn’t melted, you’re not human.
The National Wildlife Federation was kind enough to let me know that sea otters eat, rest, and sleep together while floating in groups called rafts. Rafting sea otters sometimes “hold hands” so they don’t lose each other while they’re sleeping.
That’s the most adorable thing I’ve ever heard.
Sometimes, when someone you love bumps into a metaphorical (or literal) rock like this little otter did and gets knocked off track, they need you to be there to reach out, grab their hand, and pull them back closer to you, where they belong.
Hold on tightly and don’t let go.
I’d like to dedicate this post to my Auntie Denise.
I love you. I miss you.
-Enjoy the ride.
