The Final Blessing of My Day


As I unlock the front door, she greets me there, smiling ear to ear, as we embrace and she takes over my lunch box, and water jug. She notices my shoulders lowered from the extra weight of the day. Her words start to rebuild me.

We share about the day at the table briefly, but as my eyes droop, we retreat to the bedroom. I’m asleep before I know what happened, trying to remember what she just said. I do remember a kiss.

But the most wonderful time of night, is when she searches for me, her hand fishing for mine, in the middle of the night, as we sleep. Sleeping, we know the confidence of love, even in the dark, without saying a word.

Two hands entwined, our hearts beating for each other, in the silence of the night. The unspoken language of love.

  1. What a lovely post and what a lovely sequel to the First Blessing 🙂
    You have more in your life than most people dream of. Hold on tight and shower your wife with love and time… I think most women (and your wife seems to be one of those) would like just time, more than any other gift!
    Sending lots of love and hugs your way 🙂

    1. Thank you Aishwarya! I’m so very blessed by your comments and blessings! Yes I think you’re right, time truly is the most valuable gift. Couples spending more time together would have stronger relationships. Peace my friend and be blessed each day!
