What would quiet be?

Today was a day.

Long at work, long at home. It was just one of those days. The kind of day where I want to curl under my covers as soon as I can. Everyone is emotional today after a long weekend.

There are days I wish I had some quiet. Where I had some time. Where I wonder what it would be like in calmness.

But then I look around my dinner table, to the one banging his hands squashing his food, to the one that can’t make it more than 2 minutes without talking and to Hubs who is cringing when his fantasy running back gets plowed.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

As much as I wish and dream of calm and quiet, there is a part of me that wishes our chaos was even more. Those are the days I really miss Hunter, even more than normal. His place at the table sits empty, and I ache for hisĀ  conversation and goofy humor.

But imagine the quiet…I don’t even know what to do with the though of it.

    I feel the same. I ache for the quiet but when I find myself with more than a moment of it, I want the chaos back.
