It is 5:45 on Friday evening. The kids are playing quietly. Darren is just finishing up his work. The house is a mess. It is almost silent at our house. And oddly enough, even though I am writing this blog post, I am so aware of my surroundings, I feel so connected to who I am and where I am at this point in time. I’m so thankful for my kids, for my husband, for my family. I am so grateful.
Tonight we will do a quick clean of the house (pick up all the toys, etc), make dinner and sit down as a family and watch “Despicable Me,” which has been highly recommended to us by a number of people. It’s Friday, so we are going meatless and doing bean burgers, a family favorite.
I’m just sitting here, letting all this quietness drift over me, soaking it in. Feels good.
