Quiet Time

"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."  1 Thessalonians 4:11-12

It is oddly quiet in my house.

I chose today to be the day that I attempted to set an alarm clock for myself so that I could condition myself for the onset of school drop-offs next week.

It worked and I was promptly up at 7:00 am.

The hub left for work. I’ve read some, read some email, and had a phone call from a friend who was calling me from TIMES SQUARE!! on her fabulous vacation, and still… silence.

I’m sure it won’t last much longer.

I’ve already had over an hour of it.

And just think, come next week, every morning will be like this after I drop the kids off at school.

Makes me happy, and sad, and a little too aware of how my life lacks direction.

“A sailboat without a breeze.”

That’s what someone said last week.

And he’ll never live it down!

Oh wait, here come my breezes now…
