When I began blogging, I wanted to write and later meet women who were in ttwd relationships. I offered my email address and asked those interested in friendship to write. Bloggers became good friends, but so did a handful of readers. I love them all. They are important to me. Now three years in, I am meeting some of these bloggers and a few friends. These reader friends took a chance and decided to write and we have been fast friends ever since.
One very good friend Laurel emailed recently that she and her husband had a really rough day. This day involved several spankings involving distancing and disrespect. She could not seem to recover from one spanking without causing the next. When things did calm down, she emailed me and this morning, we talked on the phone.
Even though yesterday was rough....... on her bottom, things were completely back to normal today. She said that even though yesterday was really hard, they came together this morning cuddling and making love. He had brought her back on track, peace was re-established and roles were evident and in place.
My friend said that her husband held himself in the most self-assured way. Loving and confident, he wore his role with gentleness and strength. What about my friend? She said she slipped back into her role as a submissive, supportive wife easily. Why? ........ because this is what they both wanted, but sometimes, she needed reminding of the promises each had made to one another when they began ttwd. However, her mind kept replaying what had happened again and again. She looked at her husband noting that he was playing things forward. He had moved on and was not dwelling on what he had done concerning her spankings. The situation was over and all was well. She said the strength and confidence her husband showed to keep them on track made her fall in love with him all over again. In fact, she confided that when she replayed what had happened, she appreciated his confidence and even found it to be sexy.
My friend says that when she asked her husband if he thought about what had happened, his answer was short, direct and hilarious. He told her that no, he did not think about it at all; it was over and taken care of and did she want BBQ sauce on what he was about to grill?
Thank you, Laurel for sharing BBQ sauce and all. Your guy does indeed know how to play it forward once there is peace.
