The morning had started early;
I was frazzled.
I fixed a half-cup of my GFIC decaf
and headed to my rocking chair.
I just wanted to 'still' a moment.
I needed peace.
The door opened.
I felt frustration rising.
Can't these kids leave me in peace for two minutes??
fresh from sleep
and completely unaware of his momma's state
headed in and climbed in my lap.
I held him.
And he held me.
And I stilled.
you don't always know what you think you know.
I thought I needed time alone
but what I really needed was a long sweet snuggle.
You just don't always know.
