A Simple Touch

Have you ever felt so complete from just a single touch.

I feel like all to often we loose sight of the simple moments in our lives and how all of those simple moments add up to making a life full of happiness, joy and passion.

The other day my husband and I had just gone to bed. The last few weeks have been stressful for both of us with work and just life happening so we hadn’t been communicating the best and were stuck in our routine of- wake up, go to work, come home, make dinner and go to bed. It felt like we hadn’t had a normal conversation in an eternity and I couldn’t help but feel lost.

As we were laying in bed about to fall asleep he reached over and grabbed my hand.

In darkness, in silence and lost in our own thoughts our hands meshed together so simply and perfectly. I took a moment to silence the incessant todo list running through my head to focus on this simple touch.


Da-dum, da-dum, da-dum, da-dum.

I could feel his heart beat ever so slightly as it pulsed through his hand.

Da-dum, da-dum, da-dum, da-dum.

I focused even more in on just the feeling. And I could feel my own heart beat line up with his.

Da-dum, da-dum, da-dum, da-dum.

This one simple touch connected us after an aggravating week. This one simple touch make the world make sense. With this one simple touch I felt happy, I felt home, I felt secure, and I knew that no matter what everything will be ok.

It’s crazy that something so simple can make everything in my head slowly silence and I can remember how incredibly important these small moments are.


I’m sure at some point or another we all have seen or heard the story about the processor who fills the jar with ping pong balls, rocks, sand and what not talking about filling up your life with small moments. And I can’t help but think about how true this is!

Getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life puts the simplicity on the back burner and those incredible and simple moments like just holding hands.

I felt silly smiling to myself in the dark thinking about just our two heart beats seeming to line up. But I also felt so much comfort in just that simple touch.


I want to focus more on moments like these going forward in life! These are the moments that matter most.

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
