Silence......gift or curse?

Silence in the House

No one practicing the piano, no one bouncing basketballs, no one dropping a pack and books and pulling things out of the fridge.  Just one very active girl who has been gone most days and most night in her freshmen year of high school, then holing up in her room to get ready for the next day.  Even Rebekah moved out this Saturday. There have been things I've been waiting to do - and now I have the time and room. But....... I miss the commotion.  Jeffrey and I looked at each other one night and just laughed.  It was great.  But when he is busy, I just have to remember how much I wanted to catch up! I guess I need a list of what all it was I'm looking forward to catching up on........
Maybe I could get someone over to practice the piano.

I could come out and try to learn how to play, that might create some noise, pleasant, well that is questionable. Oh and the little one that I would tote along is anything but quiet. Miss you.

Yes!!! I'd take a visit from you and your little one in a heartbeat! Wish I wasn't so far away, I'd make a really great babysitter.

Oh, this is the hard part. There is always an adjustment and then suddenly it feels great. It is the natural course of events but we don't necessarily have to like it at first. But when they come back it will drive you nuts...the noise that is. Of course you will love having them home. Take courage it will be OK. Love, B
