the day after

When I opened the box, my hands were shaking.

When I grabbed his hands, his were shaking too.

The kids were there when he asked. It was a lovely family moment.

I can’t stop staring at my left hand.

Everyone keeps saying, “It’s so you!”

He did a fantastic job.

We have received so many lovely messages from friends.

It’s overwhelming, but in the best way.

Today is a quiet day at home with the kids.

This place is a mess, but I’m in no rush to clean. We have all day.

I want to pick out my next read, then curl up and get to it.

It’s sort of strange (and sad) that Christmas is over.
