However, I do value quiet. It is valuable and needed many times. During the sermon in church, at the movies, when the kids are in time-out, at night when you're trying to sleep. It's during these times that quiet is a friend, someone I rely on.
I also enjoy, and look forward to, quiet once a day. Late at night. The kids are asleep. Amy is asleep. The dogs are asleep. The TV is off (yes, I know shocking but it does get turned off here!) or at least turned down very low. The house is quiet. Usually at this time I am relaxing in bed reading. A book, the Bible, blogs, random miscellaneous news on the Internet; you get the picture. It's my time to unwind, to say goodbye to the day and relax. Amy can go straight to bed after a long day. Just lie down and she's out. Not me though. I have to have some time to sit and decompress. It's the one and only time I relish the quiet. Shhhh though, let's not let the word out! The other 98% of the time though, quiet and I don't spend a lot of time together. But I'm ok with that.
Do you enjoy the quiet? Or are you like me and quiet makes your uncomfortable? Do you have a time when you and quiet play nicely together? :)
|Shhhhh. This is what quiet looks like here!|
All is well, with the occasional peace and quiet, in Drosche Land.
