And to all good night . . .


Tonight I will sleep.

I won't be listening for odd noises, or getting up to make sure windows and doors are locked, or have a sleepless night like I do when Joe is out of town.

I won't wait up listening for Jonathan's car to come down the driveway after his shift at Arby's.

I won't stay awake thinking about Nicholas who is away at Clemson.

No, I won't do any of those things because tonight ... we are all home.

Together.

And tonight I will sleep.
