Silence is Golden

One of my favorite things to do at night is lay in bed and read a book. Since my hubby has gotten back, it has been a lot harder to do. He likes to get to sleep much earlier than I do, but also likes to spend as much time with me as possible. To effectively problem solve this issue, I downloaded the Kindle application to my Droid phone and turned the reader to black with white lettering so as not to disturb his rest. So far it has been working out great. I get to read well into the night and he sleeps soundly beside me.

One of my favorite things about this experience is feeling his breath lightly dancing across my bare shoulder in an air kiss. As his sleep deepens, his breath starts to slow and I find myself relaxing in its rhythm. I treasure these moments because I know that he will deploy again one day and I will be left with memories and the scent of his cologne as gentle reminders. The silence is golden and the experience is priceless.
