My wife and I are very different people. At times this fact can cause tension but mostly we believe it’s the glue that holds us together.
For instance I like to go to bed early and get up early she likes to go to bed real late and get up even later. Most of the time I go to sleep in the bed alone and wake up with her beside me. Another difference is she likes to read at night. She may start in the living room but often ends up reading in the bed, lights off, using the Kindle app.
Tuesday night I went to bed around 8:30. I’ve been having a lot of trouble sleeping the last couple of weeks so going to bed early was an option I wanted to try. I woke up about 2 o’clock in the morning to see the light from Beth’s iPod shining brightly in the bedroom. However, Beth was fast asleep. Even so, the light still shone upon her face though she wasn’t aware of it.
For a few moments I stared at the light and at my wife. Too often I lose sight of how much she loves me and the myriad of ways she shows it. I was reminded that even when I’m unaware the light of her love shines upon me.
