She was sound asleep when I laid her down — carefully turning back our comforter, slowly easing her onto my pillow. So sweet.
A few minutes later, with no warning or warm-up, her sobs suddenly began. I hurriedly finished brushing my teeth and turning out the lights, and then slipped into bed next to her. Her tear-filled eyes lit up instantly, and a quivering smile that was so relieved.
She’s sound asleep again. Because she’s fine now. All she wanted was me.
Isn’t that amazing?
I think so.
