Oh, My






Look at her clenched fists. Look at his strong, muscular arms holding her tight and still. He is calming her down. He has had enough and she is very aware of what will happen next. I have a feeling that the spanking that follows will be a doozy. What do you think? 

When we have been at this very point, I have a feeling this is what we look like as well. Jack calms me and he sometimes holds me in just this way. I struggle to calm down clenching my fists in just that way. Then I listen. Jack explains his point of view, his decision, his way. I begin to relax knowing he is right. I nod and breathe. I lean in at that point. His arms loosen and he feels my body relax. His hand goes up to the back of my neck and he gently brings me over his knee. The spanking isn't a big one, but one that lets us both know how things work around here. He brings me up and holds me as I rub my red bottom. He has me and we return to each other and the things that need doing. This so works for us. There is no distancing. There is no arguing, no yelling and pulling away. There are peace, love and a sore bottom. I would not want it any other way and neither would he. 

Have you ever been in this kind of an embrace? Do tell.

  1. Meredith, that's a very powerful photo. I don't think I've ever been held like that but it's an effective way to demonstrate not only who's in charge but that he's got her.

  3. This photo is very telling. I agree that this could easily be a doozy that may result in more than one round in order for her to move on. Sometimes it just works that way, but thank goodness, as you said, it does work.
    I love your description of how things unfold at your place and how the peace is restored. the picture is beautiful but so are your words about it.

  4. Oh my gosh, Meredith. This photo and your description reminds me how much I WANT to be in this position when I'm losing my mind. I think we are still too new at this. When I am just fit to be tied, Eric still tries to "solve" my issue rather than hold me tight, reset me just right, and then let me work it out either with him or on my own. I think we can learn from this. You've provided the perfect way for me to explain what I think I need when I am over the top like this. Thanks!

      This kind of a situation hasn't happened very often, but Jack does know how to calm the situation and get us to peace.

  7. Hi Meredith, no I haven't. Actually I didn't like the photo at all. I felt scared by it. Have no idea why, it just made me feel off.
    love Jan, xx

      This way has only been used rarely, but it proved to work well when it was needed.

  10. We have been in a similar situation in the past... more me fighting what was to come. I love this picture as it really says it all. Sadly, all is at a complete halt at present as we re evaluate what works for us. I miss you, and others here in blog land. It is hard to not peek in.

    1. Annabelle,
      Nice to hear from you. I miss you too. Glad you like the photo. So do I. Things are seldom this strong, but it is good to know he can handle things when things go off track.

  13. I wonder how long he's have to hold me that way if he were the one I was mad at in the first place. I'd love to find out!

  14. The picture packs an emotional punch and I have not found myself in that position. It could probably happen though. Not to sure how I feel about that.

  15. Hey Mere...that is an extremely powerful photo and brings back many memories. As much as I didn't particularly enjoy those spankings, ahem...I have to admit...just between us...they were sometimes needed. ;)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  16. Mere,
    I think the photo speaks to all of us in a different way. For me, it brings to mind times where I withdraw and Sam says "No, that will not happen."

    There have even been times where I do not want to be hugged; I just want to wallow in the things that go wrong. The photo reflects that feeling that there is someone stronger than you who will take care of you even when you resist.

    This was the perfect time for me to read this.

    Love,
    Ella

    1. Ella, Dear Friend,
      When I saw this photo, I thought about our conversations. Our men can certainly calm us. They have their ways.
