Silence's Gift

If you could sitalone in silence for just a little while, you’d have the time to remember how much fun they are, how much you wanted them, how much love and life you want to give to them. And how much they give to you.

If you could sit and hear the thoughts in your mind that are usually drowned out by the incessant calls of “Mommy,” “Mama,” “Mom” for just a few minutes, I promise you, you’d run to be with them again.

I know this because today I sat in silence and wrote this piece. And then, I ran home to scoop them up and into my arms. The silence ended. The love continued.
