How is it that just a little bit of quiet makes such a difference in my world? Just to be able to make a complete thought or the chance to not even think at all is an amazing refresher. There are times when all my thoughts begin to run together. I flit from idea to idea, listen to endless stories about princesses and their unicycles, and try to keep our never-ending appointments straight.
Just five minutes of quiet help me re-gain some of that focus that is zapped from me in the day to day activities of being a Mama. So everyone once in a while Mama walks to the mailbox by herself, she locks the door when she goes to the potty, or she stays in the car for a few minutes when everyone else heads inside.
