It's The Little Things

Early this morning I awoke holding a beautiful young lady...her arms wrapped around me. Her head was snuggled into my right arm - her breath light and sweet. Her hair is long now and it fanned across my chest. I remained still, enjoyed the moment. It had been over a month since we'd last slept together. She, between the two of us.

I glanced over at Sweet Wife. She too was awake with a smile in her eyes, and gently whispered, "Nice, isn't it."

"Yes," I whispered back.

After breakfast she took me into our living room, moved the furniture, and gave me a lesson on the hoola-hoop. I took a video of her 'dance.' Wish I had the means to post it.

When the day nurse arrived, Little Bit took a position at my feet, and stroked my leg while the nurse worked. She quietly cried. I asked her to look away. She said, "No Papa, I need to help her."

In truth it was me she helped. Her presence is all the medication I need.  

Photos taken this morning...

  5. That's so sweet. Young GS starts out in his bed but ends up in our bed almost ever night that he is here. I will miss it when he decides he is too old or manages to sleep all through the night. I am glad your "medicine" is working.

    1. Little Bit refuses to sleep anywhere but between us...we've tried her room, and just like GS, she's back with us within an hour. Thanks, she is the best medicine.

  7. So sweet of her to help the nurse, she's trying to get you better. Thank goodness she can sleepover with ya, and know her Papa is getting better each and everyday! The healing will get better with each passing day. Hula-hoop can be so much fun at that age! I'll bet she is good. Hope you feel better. . Read and Rest. In My Prayers.

  8. So glad to hear all is turning up roses for you out of this mess. Love to hear your family stories.

    By the way, blame Kymber for introducing me to your blog which is now on my daily read list. That woman is good for something besides "poor" Jambe.

    Stay well now.
