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.
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?
Keith just woke up. Sigh. At least I had a few minutes to myself.
It was good for me.
