Quiet. It Does A Body Good.


The kids are down for naps.  It is 10:00 in the morning.  This is monemental.

I have been cleaning all morning and now, well, I am sitting, drinking my delicious green smoothie and munching on a piece of whole wheat toast.
I feel healthy.  I feel wonderful.

The sky is overcast and the wind is flirting with me.  

 Sigh.

After so much turmoil the past few weeks, this moment of peace is delicious.

I can feel energy seeping back into my soul.  I can feel a whisper of hope again.


Finally, a moment to just relax!

Sure, there are dishes to be washed.

A pile of laundry is nagging at me again.

The bathroom could use a good scrub down.

But my soul and peace of mind is much more important than any of those, so I am strategically ignoring all other claims for my attention and just soaking the quiet in.

Who knew quiet could be so illusive and seductive?



And fleeting?!

Keith just woke up.  Sigh.  At least I had a few minutes to myself.

It was good for me.
