being a wife is fun

My Love,

In my mind’s eye I can see you come in the door and all cares drop from your weary shoulders as you see me, smiling, welcoming, caring for you. I love the way you’ll drop a kiss on my cheek. The way you’ll explain to me—so patiently—what demons you have wrestled with all day and how well you bested them. I love the way my little laugh will bring a smile to your eyes and your breathing relaxes and deepens. I love to think of how you’ll catch my hand and kiss it to let me know I’ve done my job beautifully, and you are feeling restored and rejuvenated to the wonderful, admirable, capable slayer of demons and dragons I so admire.

Your Li’l’ Wife
