Physical Therapy?

Nope, not the kind of physical therapy that has you stretched on a rack, with half-assed promises to heal your messed up vertebrae or cure the hitch in your get-along. Nor the type where you tug on rubber bands, sit on plastic balls, or use myriad other torture devices to heal various broken body parts.

I'm talking about REAL physical therapy. One on one where the only energy spent is tucking yourself under a blanket with someone you love. The kind of physical therapy that tugs on your heart strings good and hard and causes healing tears to fall freely down your cheeks. This kind of physical therapy:

Or maybe it's the release of tension and stress that happens as the result of viewing the innocence, love and sweetness shared between a boy and his dog.

I only know that no doctor could have given me any pill, exercise or magic potion to heal my broken heart like my Buster boy did over this past weekend. I love you Gavin.

Love the photos - you can def. tell he is your grandson - good looks run in the family!

Those are definitely special moments. That age is one of my favorites because children's emotions are all out. Love flows freely.

I'm sorry your heart is still broken and will continue to pray for healing (and more Gavin therapy).

hugs.

He's such a darling boy and growing like a weed. Hugs my friend!

Legacies are so much fun to create. Don't you just want to ask "what did I ever do to deserve this?" Hugs and happiness to you Mags.

Children and pets are wonderful for healing the heart. Both don't judge you and give you the right amount of cuddles to put a smile back on your face.

Gavin looks so much like you, Mags! Here's hoping that Gavin's brand of physical therapy will have long lasting effects and keep a smile on your face for a long, long time. :)

Sniff.... sniff. What's the big idea making me get all teary-eyed? I need to hug a baby and there's none to be had in my neighborhood. I guess Pap will have to do in a pinch.

There is nothing like the love of a Grandchild. I know exactly what you mean. Well said.
