Today’s Prompt: Together
It’s beginning to look different, the ways that we connect, the way I sit in the hollowed out space on the sofa and she, long and lean, in the leather chair next to me. You think that being together will always look like her hanging on to the bottom of your leg, begging for you to pick her up. Then it starts to look like her snuggling next to you and asking for another bedtime story.
She came home and told me that she was the only kid in her class without Facebook. The only one to raise her hand when the teacher asked. One of us is calling it a character building moment, the other is calling it a blight on her social life.
Hiding behind my hand, I smiled to myself because I realize that this is how we are together now. She, pulling at my heartstrings and me, attempting to tug them back. Those heartstrings hurt for the stretching. But it’s a good kind of hurt, and I’m learning to let them stretch and see how far they can go before snapping back.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I’m also hanging out with Sarah at her lovely website Speaking of Truth today. If you have a few more minutes hop on over there and say hello!
