Quiet

I am sitting here with the sun shinning through the window listening to the quiet. It has been a very long time since quiet permeated our home. Brigette and Lance are out and about, Kevin is sleeping because he worked the night shift last night and the dogs are basking in the beautiful warmth of the sun.

silence...

Awww...wonderful silence...

Our home has turned upside down with the start of the Biggest Loser program and the arrival of Brig and Pippin. I am constantly in the kitchen preparing healthy food, or working out, or listening and getting out of the way of dogs running and playing and barking, or spending time with Brigette as she is planning and preparing for the next phase of her life, or having staff and therapists over at different times during the week for Lance.

Stop...

Breath...

Listen to the quiet...

Thank you Lord...

Glad to see you posting again. Love the new background, makes me want to go to the beach. My house is not as busy as yours, but I do enjoy the silence when I am alone.I am happy to hear you are still active with the biggest loser.
