The quiet doesn't happen much here.
Well, here on my blog, it does.
HERE, at my house, it does not.
Quiet lends itself to thought.
Quiet leads me to focus on others and not myself or the long list of to-do.
Quiet reminds me that God is here, even when my world is spinning loudly.
It allows me to nurture.
To breathe before the height of the busy season before me comes crashing in.
Recently, my husband said "I need to get out to your blog and read it. I don't remember the last post I read." To which I replied, "That's OK, you haven't missed much. It doesn't matter any way, you live my blog with me in real life, in real time. You don't need to read about it."
He came back with "I know, but I like to read your blog and what you write about. Plus, I enjoy reading the comments." I laughed because what was just as fun for me (reading blogs and the comments), he hinted was equally rewarding for him.
The weeks ahead will be full enough and there will be plenty to blog about, rest assured.
IF Spring ever comes, there will be lots to do and enjoy outside again.
I've got an almost eight year old boy with a birthday and a sacramental celebration in a couple weeks.
School to try and
drag out wrap up in another six weeks.
Swimming lessons for the big kids next month.
A certain homeschool conference that we just registered for.
Perhaps more potty training willingness from Gianna will lead to more success.
And so many other things that keep popping up that make my head spin.
It looks like my husband will have lots of catching up to do when he does finally get around to reading here.
He'd probably agree that it's more fun just living it and thinking about how awesome it would come across in a blog post.
I hope that you are finding days that allow for the sometimes quiet in your life too.
