Sometimes I wish I were an ESD

For those who aren’t familiar with ESD’s, they are Emotional Support Dogs.  They work with people with emotional disabilities and their whole job is to make their human partner feel emotionally strong and supported enough to be able to live a normal (or close to normal) life. 

Yesterday, Julie was in a lot of pain.  I had tasks I had to do for her, but I really would have liked to have just curled up next to Julie and comfort her, rather than do my tasks.  If I’d been an ESD, I would have been able to comfort her.  I know what I did was important too (and maybe more helpful), but I really wanted to comfort her!
