Steve is away this week, golfing with ‘the boys’ in Florida. Sarah, my youngest, is almost 14 but has always had a penchant for wanting to sleep with me. For years she slept next to me on the floor on a comforter because she wanted to hold my hand as she went to sleep and didn’t want to be in her own room. As you can imagine, this eventually stopped when she was 10ish. I didn’t mind too much as trying to go to sleep with my arm stretched over the side of the bed was getting mighty uncomfortable and truth be told, I wasn’t as appreciative of the connection as she was.

But I was just so touched that even at this age, when she knew Steve was going away, she just looked at me, raised her eye brows and I nodded. We rubbed our hands together in glee, we were going to be holding hands in the dark once more. I think I am more excited than she is. Each night when I go to bed, there she is all snuggled up and warm in my bed, with her face calm, her beautiful eyelashes fanned out over her closed eyes. I slip into bed, kiss her softly on her cheek and take her warm, slightly sweaty hand in mine, feeling enveloped with love as I drift off to sleep. Such a simple act, such impact on my heart.

Below is a picture of Sarah with her rabbit, Smokey.

Love to all,
Amanda
