At peace

Freya wrote a beautiful post about names, one in which their love comes across very brightly. In passing mentioned how she sleeps with her husband. It was something I could have written almost word for word!

On those nights when I can't sleep and my mind won't stop. Then I curl up with sandy, press myself in, her ass against my groin, my arm resting between her breasts, my face against her shoulder breathing the scent of her skin... and my mind and body finally relax, breathing slows, mind stops buzzing.

Funnily enough my daughter is the same. She can be buzzing and unable to sleep for hours, but if one of us curls up with her and hugs her, within minutes her breathing has slowed and she is fast asleep. Of course mummy and daddy love that too :) That time spent just relaxing and hugging my child, feeling needed, sensing her heartbeat and breathing against my chest, smelling her hair and feeling her still little arms around me makes me happy and at peace. All is well in our little world.
