Prompt: Textures are everywhere: The rough edges of a stone wall. The smooth innocence of a baby’s cheek. The sense of touch brings back memories for us. What texture is particularly evocative to you?
When I lie with my head on hubby’s lap and he strokes my hair. He knows I find it relaxing and comforting. It reminds me of when I was a young(er) girl. I would often put my head on my dad’s lap when he sat down to watch some movie or other on a Sunday. He would stroke my hair and I loved it. So now when my hubby does it, it reminds me of peaceful Sunday afternoons with my dad.
Also, when hubby strokes my back when we’re lying in bed. I shared a room with my three younger sisters when I was growing up. My littlest sister sometimes crawled into bed with me, and she’d stroke my back.
