A Memory

I wanted to write this down so I don't forget:

Yesterday morning, Scott had to leave around 5 a.m. to go meet someone for a breakfast meeting 2 hours away. He does this occasionally to be at a dairy during milking or feeding time. When he leaves, he kneels by my side while I'm in bed, holds me, kisses me, and tells me how much he loves me. It. Is. The. Best. And then I get to fall back asleep.

Later in the day, I remembered how, when we used to have a dairy, he would do this each and every morning. Sometimes it was at 3:30 a.m., others it was at 6. But I loved it. If I happened to be awake around 6 when he left I would stay in bed pretending to still be asleep so that he would go through the same routine. And I was sadly disappointed on the days I had to get up before him, which was rare.

Now, it only happens about once a month, and I didn't realize until this afternoon how much I missed that sweet little start to my day. We're so busy with kids and jobs and life that taking 30 seconds out to focus only on each other is just a really special moment, something we need to work harder to make a priority.
