Lingering between sleep and wakefulness, she savours that blissful moment when sunlight gently caresses her eyelids…
A new dawn unveiled.
The drapes, stirred by the breeze into dancing flickers of light and shadow.
She listens, hearing only her own gentle, rhythmic breathing.
Nestled in a warm blanket, cosy, snug, safe.
Silence. Stillness. Peace.
It doesn’t last.
‘MUUUM!!! SANTA BROUGHT PRESENTS!’
Merry Christmas! 😀
