I lay in his arms feeling my whole body relax beneath the strength and certainty of his love and wondering how long it had been since we'd shared such an honest and intimate moment.
I wondered whether I'd been so swept up in the currents of love for my boy that I'd neglected the source of love from which this little family had sprung and promised myself that I'd be more mindful of my marriage in the busy weeks to come.
When we woke I kissed his sleepy cheek and told him how much his words had meant.
"I have no recollection of that whatsoever," he said looking at me blankly. "I must have been fast asleep."
