Now I lay me down to sleep

It’s been a long day, and here I am at the end of it – alone.

There were many years of my life I wished for the right “him” to be with as I ended my day.  I thought to be complete I needed a husband or at least a lover.  That to be alone meant that I had somehow failed.  And as a result of that conception caused myself and my children untold grief.  Tonight when I crawl into that double bed I’ll sprawl all over it, pull the covers where ever I want them.  Turn my television to what ever channel I want it – as loud as I want it.  Sleep with it on maybe.  I won’t worry that I might snore, or God forbid drool.  I may entertain my mothers favorite pass time and pass gas under the covers.  I may even consider how farting became a competition sport in Texas.  But tonight I won’t miss my late husband.  (he’s not dead – just left one day and didn’t come home.)  

I’ll thank God for another day above ground and the ability to see the good part of coming home….alone.

    Do you think that could possibly be because we’re terrified of becoming your grandparents? Definately so for me.

    Well, I’d say Sis is the notible exception to that rule. She has found the right person to be with.

    And my sister. She seems to have a “stick to it” attitude that our brother and myself don’t seem to have.
