Today's Prompt: Awake
That may seem silly to some, it's only three days. But to me, that is two nights sleeping alone in our bed, something I haven't done since the divorce. I know there are many who have to make that sacrifice often, and I don't discount that. Nor do I try to compare this to that.
In my little world, though, those are two nights without his body to keep me warm, his breathing to make me feel safe, his arms to wrap me up tightly. It's two less hands to help with dishes, bedtime, baths or "welcome home" hugs. One less voice to inspire cooperation from my kids. One less ear to listen to my frustrations.
When you go through a period of time convincing yourself that you don't need someone when you really do, then you get the chance to try again, you have to reteach yourself to need them again. This morning I was awakened to how very much I need him in my life. It was a happy discovery.
Confession: Today I went over a bit...wanted to finish my thought! Happy Friday, people!
