Now I hadn't seen Katie for a day or so due to travel away from home so I really wanted to see her sooner rather than later but that was not to be. I arrived, made a quick walk through of the home and did a few chores to make sure the house was tidied and that 'my' usual daily chores where done. I then relaxed with a glass of wine and checked the blog and responded to a blog or two that I enjoy reading.
The instruction to wait for Katie is a small one. It's not a big deal in the scope of things and yet it is. It is an indication that my role is to obey her will rather than respond to my desire. The fact that Katie is comfortable telling me honestly what she wishes is profound. I love that she can spend time with her friends and I love even more that she feels free to tell me what to do even if it means time apart. It is this expression of her dominance - the fact that she can be free to do as she pleases - that drives me to want to please and serve her all the more.
Our evening ended in bed. She cuddled up to me for a bit then said, "I want a massage." I obeyed and spread oil from knees to neck and massaged her until she fell asleep and for a long time after. It was as much a joy for me as it was for her. What better way to spend then end of my day than in obedience to her.
