an open love letter

A couple nights ago I awoke at 3 in the morning and couldn't fall back asleep. I snuggled up behind Randy and threw my arm around him. He sighed and brushed his hand with mine before falling back into a deep sleep. As I lay there I began to think about how blessed I was to have someone to sleep next to every night, who I could wrap my arms around, and who would wrap theirs around me. I thought about how lucky I was to have someone who made me feel so safe, so content, and so loved. I had a wave of affection wash over me and I had to resist an urge to squeeze him as he slumbered.

Later, when my arm fell asleep I rolled onto my back. Randy pushed away from the side of the bed and turned, completely crushing my whole right side. He then began to snore; a high pitched wheezy snore like that of a baby elephant.

Lucky guys. Soooo lucky.

LMAO! I hear ya girl. I snuggle up to Carlos, gratefull to feel the warmth of him next to me and within moments....he is snoring so loudly in my ear that it sounds like a snarling grizzly bear. So I crawl out of bed shuffle to MY room and sleep cozily in my own bed, with the distant sound of Carlos, drifting in from the other room!
