Today has been filled with tons if activity: washing the dog, keeping the kitten entertained, “making” a horse (we have a kit), cleaning, laundry, cooking, listening to music, taking out the garbage, cleaning the backyard, riding bikes, phone calls, crafts, watching a movie … A day filled with constant motion.
Stella was in her room and I was exhausted, half-laying on the couch just looking out the window … thinking of nothing, really. When I realized that it was absolutely still in the house. And it was an amazing moment. I realized that my home was completely calm. Quiet.
And it made me feel joy. And peace.
How rare those moments are … Those that make you thankful for every single one of the other moments: the busy, the loud, the crazy, the sweet, the loving, the good…
It is in the very quiet, still – almost magical moments – where I am utterly thankful to have the life that I live.
