Grateful for Quiet

November 17, 2012 0 Comments

Tonight I was waiting for my husband to finish a little work so that we could watch a show on Netflix together. While waiting I sat, folding laundry, in silence.

There was no radio, no TV. The kids were in bed, so no kiddie chatter.

Silence.

Honestly, the quiet made me a little uncomfortable.

The quiet also made me realize how rarely I make such space for my thoughts.

I’m always playing music, watching a video on my computer or listening to a podcast while I wash the dishes.

The quiet was refreshing. The silence left me craving more.

Tonight I am grateful for the reminder of the power of silence.
