Peace and Quiet

Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content. ~ Helen Keller

It is very quiet in my house now. The boys are gone. The girls are gone. I waver between falling face first in the quiet and reveling in it…and wanting to turn on the music and blare some life and noise into my home. I loved every minute of having the house bursting to the seams with people and laughter. I’m strangely soothed and annoyed by the quiet that surrounds me now. Do you ever feel that way?

I guess I just need to give myself a little adjustment time. Or maybe I’m just a TAD overly emotional this week.

I think you hit the nail on the head with your observations as to why you might feel this way. We have very emotional responses to weddings, especially those of our children. And although it hasn’t happened to me yet, I think it’s a valid point. To be suddenly all alone after a week’s worth of guests and family love would do that to me, too.

I’m taking a cleaning break. I’m actually thinking of quitting (cleaning) for the day. Just sitting in the AC before I do the upstairs. I wish I had a pool . . .
