Your Side of the Bed

I slid over to your side of the bed
and wrapped my body around your pillow
a cool patch of sheet beneath my skin
cold and naked without you there

  1. Amy,
    I have so been there. You have my thoughts and prayers and you weather this time apart.

  2. How much longer? Have you two ever thought about a care package for while He is away? One He provides to you with a way to give you a connection to Him? I remember when I nursed my daughter my son got jealous. I prepared a basket with videos (30 min ones), books, arts and crafts. While I nursed, he got to pick from the basket anything he wanted for us to do... me read a book, help him color, put together a puzzle, watch a movie with him... the basket was only allowed to be utilized only when I was nursing. It took less than a week for him to realize how he could get my attention and share a bonding moment. I would sporadically add new stuff, etc., and he would get so thrilled when he discovered something new.

    I'm just wondering of Eric provided a basket only to be utilized while he is gone if it would help.

    1. I love it! I had a toy basket with my kids too. It was so funny because the first one spent hours rummaging through and finding exactly the perfect thing to do together. The second kid literally threw everything on the floor and would just want us to play with the basket. Haha. I never thought of doing a basket for myself but I do have my usual routine when he's gone - sleep in his t-shirt, things like that.

  4. Distance is just a test
    To see how far love can travel.

    1. Did you come up with this?! I love it. It's a beautiful sentiment. Thank you so much, Ella. I think I should embroider this on his pillow case!
