looking into the eyes of the one you love…

looking into the eyes of the one you love
the last documented time we (almost) looked each other in the eyes

lately, i’ve noticed how often i go without really looking into my husband’s eyes.
entire days pass with meals prepared and schedules orchestrated and teeth flossed and still i haven’t paused long enough to look into the eyes of the man with whom i spend my days.

sometimes i remember.
i call him back.
we pause.
we really see each other.
we have a moment.

today, after 6 days home together, i see it. his hand. the top of it. i reach out and touch it. it’s magical. like wow. here’s a hand. here’s a whole person who i see every day, but rarely notice.
