Do you hear that?
Ahhhh. Nothin’. Not a thing. I’m the only one home right now. (I’m writing this on Monday afternoon.)
Since it was such a beautiful day today, several of my friends and I met at the park with our kids to have a picnic and play. For once…my boys were not very interested in food…but more interested in playing in the sunshine. Whoa.
THEN, as we were packing up to go home…somehow all of my boys got farmed out to go play at their friend’s houses. ALL OF THEM.
I came home by myself. ALL BY MYSELF.
This so rarely happens…which is fine of course. I like being around my kids…usually and except for when they’re fighting. But oh the quietness around me right now is quite lovely.
On my way home…I stopped by our health food store and treated myself to a bottle of mineral water and a bottle of organic lemonade. I mixed them together and now, I’m sipping on a yummy,refreshing, fizzy glass of delightfulness. AND NO ONE IS ASKING FOR A DRINK OF IT.
Later…when they come home…I’ll be so happy to see them and I might find it in my heart to share.
Oh, but for now, I am grateful for the rare quietness that I hear around me. It’s a blessing to be refreshed.
