It was a late night for us last night ...
I dont think I actually drifted off to sleep until well after 1 am - but thats another story - TBC
It was such a pleasure to open my eyes to the sunshine this morning !
The wind was dancing up the lake creating white caps that - as they hit the shore - bounced off the bulk head
It truely is a magnificent site
You could hear the chatter of the birds as they all joined chorus to celebrate the arrival of the new day ...
The BEST part though was being snuggled up in the bed with my girls and Johnny
THAT doesnt happen very often
I rose to put the coffee pot on and let the pups do their morning duties
They too were elated to see the sun which has been absent for some time now
If this were another place perhaps we all would not be so obsessed but here - in Texas - it is suppose to be "sunny" ( most of the time )
With all the cold temperatures and rain of late you would swear we were in Seattle or some such other " weather trodden" place
Anyway - with the dogs watered and fed and the morning beverage cups prepared - filled to the brim with love and affection - I toddled on back to bed where I was greeted with a warm smile and hug.
As age has become us both we then reached in unison to our nightstand drawers and pulled out our weapons of choice - the spectacles which would allow us to engage in the coming event
Armed with our materials - he with a novel - 1984 to be exact - and I will my manuals - for I am preparing to take another certification ... we prepped the pillows and hunkered in for what would be one of the loveliest mornings we have spent TOGETHER in a long time
You see - it isnt so much what you say but what you do - and more importantly - how you do it - especially when you are with the ones you profess to love
Quality time - shared - separate - yet - only a touch and a breath away
Small moments that last a lifetime
Simple yet filled with a genuine affection
Thats what was here in our bed this morning and I am so grateful and blessed to have been given the opportunity to have it
One moment in time that will last an eternity.
