I love the word quiet. Not that you would use it to describe me by any means. If there were one word that would NOT describe me best, it would be the word quiet. Everything about me feels loud…my voice, my personality, my kids…you get the picture. However, I have felt this sense of quiet lately that would not be my normal adjective of choice. It has been a nice change of pace, and I have to say, I have enjoyed it.
In the hustle and bustle of this wonderful season, I have felt stilled, by something not short of a miracle. I have decorated small and simple this year, and have gotten a tree that is barely taller than I. I have run with my dog and have laughed with my children. I have put on less make up and put on pajamas more. And, it has felt right and good in every sense of the way. May your days be merry and bright…and maybe even a little quieter than usual this year.
