Sweet Surrender

This long Thanksgiving time finds us with family far from home. The visiting was great and all we did was fun. Living in a hotel for a week was not at all fun. We really could not be ourselves. Returning to the hotel late at night and getting up early to join family for another day's adventure was fun, but this schedule left little time for us.

Jack complimented me on how I was handling things. He said he was pleased with my leaning into his decisions. Smooth and sweet until.............. on our almost last morning here, I barked orders and was snippy. Jack was quick to spank, hard and fast despite paper-thin hotel walls. Once again, I was totally surprised by this spanking. I had not realized how bossy I was. Jack was right there "to take care of things".  After the short spanking, I melted into his arms and apologized.  He said that the bossiness needs to go and he will spank it away whether we are home or away.

So now over six months in to ttwd/dd. and another time away from home, I am doing better at knowing what my husband expects of me and am aware that if needed, reminders will come my way. I find it very reassuring and safe to know that this sweet surrender is so right for me to accept.  I love the way it makes me feel. I feel loved and care for in so many ways.

We are home the day after tomorrow. When we are home and privacy is ours, I know we will have that delicious time to ourseleves and do the reaffirmation Jack and I both think is really important.

  8. Hi Meredith,
    I have been reading your blog for awhile & I like it alot, thank you for sharing, it has really been helpful! Glad you had a week vacation with family, staying in a hotel & you only had one slip up! And glad Jack was able to take care of it right away & very effectively!!
    SHM ; )

  9. Meredith, how reassuring to know Jack will handle the situation quickly! We were not at that place six months into ttwd. How did you handle the thin wall aspect? I've had a couple of situations where I was worried about someone hearing and I have a really hard time worrying about that and having trouble focussing on the spanking itself. Clara

  10. Meredith, I can completely relate to that feeling of security, knowing we will be held accountable no matter what. That consistency is so reassuring. Just today, I did something to provoke Jason, and to my shock, his hand came down hard and fast on my bottom. We were alone in the room but not the house, so I was surprised. I felt bad for a while -- I hate being punished -- but I do like knowing he is serious, when all is said and done.

  11. Meredith, so glad you had a good thanksgiving with your family. And I love this's so great that you are getting what you need and feel secure in Jack. xoxo
