Right now


Here's me and my girl holding hands as I lay by her cot and wait for her to fall asleep.


For the first moment in goodness know when, I stopped my mind from racing ahead and just slowed up and enjoyed. Enjoyed her hand in mine. Her baby music playing softly around us. The faint sound of the World Cup blaring from the TV downstairs. I soaked in the joy and sadness that this too will pass. 

It felt really good.
