I often hear people say, “We’ve been so busy.” And I suppose most of us feel that way. I know that I do – the lone introvert in a large family of extroverts. But we’re not always boisterous and busy. We have our quiet moments built into our routine too and (no surprise) it’s one of my favorite times of the day.:)
It was 5:30 am and I could hear him calling out over the balcony,
“WHAT ARE WE DOING TODAY, MOM?!”
Not that this was unusual. It was his typical morning routine – and a rather painful one, I might add. After all, what mom wants to be woken up by loud shout from her little guy?
But it was like he couldn’t help himself. He was so full of enthusiasm and excitement for what the day might hold.
“I don’t know, Son…why don’t we just take it slow today?”
Somehow that was never a good answer for him. He was looking forward to Big Plans and Lots of People. Like the rest of our children (who apparently take after their father).
Now don’t get me wrong. I like people. And I like getting things done.
But I crave quiet too.
Please join me over at The Better Mom for the rest? Finding a Little Quiet in All the Busy.
In His grace,
