We have just returned from a wonderful family/friend Thanksgiving visit. We encountered many weather delays and were mighty glad to crawl into our own bed in the wee hours of the morning. This little story happened before we left.
That title is kind of serious and doesn't reflect how loving and tender ttwd can be. The language of ttwd can calm a situation in a heartbeat. My Hoh talking firmly, quietly, tenderly in my ear does often settle me down. Sometimes time is on my side and that was what I was counting on. Let me share with you what happened to illustrate.
The day was a long day and several times, my attitude had really taken a turn, not to my liking nor the liking of Jack. In fact twice, Jack had his hands on his hips and I was apologizing as fast as I could. We had friends arriving and that arrival saved my hide. In the final attitude mess, Jack pulled me close telling me we would talk about this later. We ttwd wives all know what that means. It was many hours until "later" and things did get much sweeter. Friends enjoyed themselves and then everyone went home. We watched a little TV and then we went up to bed. We climbed into bed and I was thinking so far so good.
The lights now were out and we cuddled under the warmth of fresh linens and fluffy duvets. Then, in an instant, those covers were pulled, I was flipped over and held firmly in place. Jack had his hand on my bottom and he began to quietly talk in his low, husky bedroom voice whispering in my ear. He told me that he had decided to meet my show of remorse with his compassion in how I had handled several things. There would be no spanking. Because he has me held in place, on my tummy, all ready to take care of things, I still wondered. We stayed in that precarious position for a little longer. There might not be a spanking coming, but we were in a mighty logical position. The silence was a bit unsettling, but for once, I kept my mouth shut. Two sharp spanks ended the husky talk. Then he reached down and pulled the duvet up around us. He kissed me and said it was time to sleep.
My guy went right out, but I had our shutters open and I watched the night sky, the stars and the approaching planes far in the distance make their big turns to the south. I so love the way this ttwd works.
