::Quiet House::

{A Christmas gift from Rafe}

The kids went back to school two days ago.

I *really* enjoyed having them home, and Eric too! He was home the entire week before Christmas.
We did have such a wonderful time together. We baked, and ate, crafted and created, did puzzles, ate more, and spent much time with friends and family.

My house is now quiet.

There is always such an adjustment period after the kids go back to school.
When everyone is at home there is sound, not like noise, but the underlying hum of family life.
I love this, it calms me and uplifts me.

It's way too quiet now.

Now it's time to organize, plan, budget, and give my time to my kids in their classrooms.
I can think off all sorts of things that I can do to keep me busy.
The fact is that I miss their little faces during the day.

I am still finding my way, my rhythm. It's uncomfortable. But change usually is.
I do know this, God will use this to grow me and to stretch me in ways that I cannot even imagine.
And that is good.

Blessings to you,
