I then felt his hand patting the comforter – searching for me. It came to rest once it found my side.
I realized I LOVE that:
Despite the fact he is a 28-year-old, dirty hand working, beer drinking, beard growing man –
Despite the fact he sleeps with a baseball bat beside him because he knows it makes me feel safe –
Despite the fact he served 5 years in the army which included one tour to Afghanistan –
I’M the one that protects him from bad dreams.
