The quietness …

It’s 10:30 at night and laying here in bed in the darkness taking in the stillness.. the quietness of my house. It’s been this way for several months now no sound of music or tv in the next rooms or the sound of laughter echoing in the house. Throughout the night Just quietness . Something I’m adjusting to . Not a bad thing actually for the moment comforting because this quietness is not a worry feeling but a reassuring one ..my kids are doing what they should be doing their making a life . Their not running all over town doing god knows what or where. I say this because in our Town three young adults in their 20’s were in a terrible car accident the night before and it took the life of one of the three ..leaving the other two in serious condition in the hospital. I feel for this family and the girl who’s life was cut short. Do not know all the details no one really knows at this point still figuring it out . But one thing is speed was a factor and these young adults all they do is run and so on . So I take this quietness and am grateful that I’m not wondering where my kids are . I just pray when my son comes home he stays on the foundation he is building …of course I cannot wait for some noise it will be welcoming and there will be since he is leaving 12 days later for more training so friends will be here to see him. but knowing that he is growing and maturing will be a nice feeling too , and I hope his humbleness he has lately being away stays with him. I will always pray for them to be safe and well and happy . But knowing their starting to settle into a life of their own . The quietness will not be a sign of emptiness or sadness but of a new journey my husband and I will be happy to live with. For months now we have taken this quietness as sadness when all along we should have embraced it as a start of good things our family is where they should be. We did good and now to keep praying for all this and keep the faith they stay on the right path. So as I drift off to sleep with the stillness of our house I will pray for peace and yes for the families of this terrible tragedy ..

The light in the darkness ..

The darkness came and then there was light.. The moon came out and outside my window the light shinned in. The moon is amazingly full . Casting shadows throughout the yard giving the snow a sparking site

Early Friday Night..

It’s about 8:20 on another stormy Friday night. Pitch black out already actually has been since 7:45… humid still …it feels like it will never break. Woke a bit early to catch a ride with my son who had a massage appointment .. his shoulders have been very tight so the Dr. suggested this . Plus I think he enjoys it …who wouldn’t .. I love going in with him even tho I do not need to sit in the waiting room for him now that he’s 18 it’s much better then waiting for him with the car running you walk in and this lady is such a beautiful person , there this energy of calm and peacefulness ,the lights are low, candles here and there , soft comforting music playing. Plus the seats are like big reading leather recliners but they don’t recline .. you get the picture. So when my son went in for his massage the lady at the desk came over and we chatted about the energy around us and then I told her about the last couple of dreams I had that were so strange to me and anyone else I’ve tried or would tell . .. but she was so amazing trying to figure out what they could mean. Yes I love all this kind of things. It’s intriguing to me. When she had more customers come in I started reading my book. Just so relaxing their she had offered me tea it sounded so good but if it had been cooler out I would of said yes. After my son was finish we went to the shopping place I wanted to go to I had a gift card so I bought a lamp that my son had bought for the den that I just loved and I also bought a bean bag chair need more seating in my living room if we all want to watch tv together . Since the futon couch has ended up in the den and my other couch is my hubbies spot and the recliner is mine (hahaha) so we are saving up for another big couch. So for now I bought this bean bag chair let’s say it’s ugly the only color they had was blue so it doesn’t go well in the living room with our color scheme but my daughter loves it. It is very comfortable. They ran out of black which is what I wanted . Well I will cover it with a black seat cover. That should work for now. Any ways my son just came home with a friend, my daughters birthday tomorrow so she is and will be out off and on through out her weekend …tomorrow we will have family over for cake and ice cream and then she will be back out with her boyfriend and friends, 23 it still so unbelievable. .. so my hubby and I are in bed with the baseball game on and I have my book on my lap . We can hear the thunder rolling in and flash of lightening here and there. I think I will get back to my book before it gets late and getting some sleep๐Ÿ™‚

In the dark…

It 10:30 at night and my hubby needs to sleep The last couple of nights Ive had the light on reading and I feel bad to do this to him again. I could go in our living room but I’m nice and cozy in bed and so should I go to bed as well but this moon is not helping it’s almost full . I’ve decided I would play Bubble POP till my eyes get heavy enough to go to sleep …will see how this goes. Wish me luck ๐Ÿ™‚
