On days filled with endless chatter,
I long for silence, quiet , peace.
Barraging giggles, loud whispers, conspiratory voices
easily overwhelm the balance within me.
Deep within, my inner voice questions
if I will readily, willingly embrace
the eventual silence that will come
when my nest is empty, silent.
Then I remember, "I chose this."
This haphazardly controlled chaos of life
that this mom with three boys
lives, balances, treasures and fights against,
is something she chose willingly, wholeheartedly
when her heart and soul were quiet
and not yet full of joy.Longing for silence? Want to know more about Six Word Fridays? Check out Melissa's blog!
