Moments to treasure

A small head was just nestled into my shoulder. Fruity shampoo filled my senses and dampened my shirt. Little fingers twirled my hair like spaghetti on a plate. Twirl after twirl. Baby soft skin swept across my cheek as little arms pulled me close for a snuggle. Then my shoulder started to sag as the weight began to shift. I looked forward to find that eyes were closed and breathing had slowed down.

My three-year-old sweetheart had fallen asleep in my arms. My memory quickly flashed to those moment when I would rock him in my arms until he fell asleep. His whole body fit within my arms but now he wraps around me. Where has the time gone? I sat there, for 3 hours.....just holding him and wishing that time would stand still. 

What a gift this moment was. I savored every minute and can't wait for it to hopefully happen again soon.
