Today's word is Quiet...
Shhhh….how I relish the moments of pure quiet. Since my daughters were born, 21 years and 18 years ago, I began the habit of waking an hour earlier than them and my husband. I find that hour of quiet to be beneficial in my outlook to the day. How lovely it is to read the paper, exercise and eat a hearty breakfast before the rest of the house rises. I keep this habit going on vacations too and enjoy a solitude few mile walk each morning, before everyone else rises and we meet for breakfast.
What do you do to instill at least a few moments of quiet in your day? Thanks for visiting.
