#BlogFlash2012: Day Twenty One – Night

The Longs: 1980s

Dave, me and the girls (1980s)

NightNight Watch

When our daughters were babies, Dave woke up with them at night. With four little ones under the age of six, I was exhausted. By relieving me through the night, allowing me to sleep, he helped me manage my days. Now, when I have nightmares and cry out, he reaches over, lays a warm hand on my shoulder.

At night, when the house is quiet, the imagination jerks into overdrive, goblins disrupt the peaceful silence and problems-scaled to realistic proportion in daylight-magnify and grow monstrous. After dark, when I am my smallest and most vulnerable, he comforts me. This is what love is really about.
