Sleeping Beauty

...

Sometimes I still feel compelled to check to make sure Neviyah is breathing. Especially when she has been sleeping a long time. Like tonight. Like right now. I wonder if she has another fever. If her legs are cold. If her chest is rising and falling. So I do what any paranoid parent would do. I go to her. I watch her chest to see it rise and fall. I lightly grasp her leg. Not cold. I sweep her forehead. Not hot. Then I take a deep breath in. I look at my beautiful daughter and wonder what I did to deserve such a creature.
