Five Minute Friday - Quiet

Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..


I am home alone tonight.
I hear the fan of the computer, the clock in the kitchen, the typing of the keys, the traffic on the highway.
This would be considered quiet.

But I LOVE the quiet of the breeze in the trees, the solitude of being surrounded by God's creation.  I have missed moments like that lately, as to be expected when motherhood is abounding with young ones. 

It's nice to have this quiet now.  Husband is 2500 miles away trying to make a living for us.  7 year old is having his first sleep over at a non-relative's house.  Baby in the womb is kicking but silent!

I miss the deep quiet of the mountains, or even the coast where the waves produce a sound but create a silence.

Quiet can be a loaded word at times, though.
