It may be because both my parents worked so me and my little sisters were always alone. It may be because mom died when I was 12 and dad left soon after leaving me with a lecherous grandfather who molested me and one of my sisters or it may be as simple as I love living in my very own family unit cocoon. It makes me feel safe and secure when we are all together.
This morning we spent the morning taking our time, moving slowly without stress, everything was ready last night so we had extra time for the kids to wake, come to the living room, lie on the couch while they woke up and I even had time to hold each one before we had to get out the door. They are 7 and 9 but still come out of their bedrooms ready for a hug and a cuddle from me. Sometimes they even fall back asleep while I hold them. I know that these moments will fly so I relish in their neediness.
