you don't always know

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.
uninterrupted quiet.
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.
I realized
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.


  1. How sweet, I can't wait to have a little one to snuggle, that is my favorite part!!


You're leaving me a comment?? Oh goody! I love comments :-)
