Today I’m thankful for silence.
For my Sister and her husband who were willing to watch my crazy kids for three days so that I could enjoy silence.
For comments like: “Our house was a musical for 3 days” (Joe) to remind me of the joy that my kids hold in their hearts and express in their songs. My house is a musical all the time and I am so grateful for this. I don’t always find it endearing – sometime’s it downright tries my patience in every possible way to not yell when the same line of the same song is hummed under someone’s breath for the five hundredth time in a morning, but really, I’m so glad that that music is penetrating their hearts and mine.
For a husband who understands me even me and who makes it hard to stop smiling.
Friends who encourage and listen and pray
