Do you ever tire of hearing your own voice?
Moms especially feel this way when the voice says over and over
“not in your mouth!”
“not in his mouth!”
“on your bottom!”
and even the nicer ones like
“Do you want Mommy to kiss it better?”
“Hooray! You pooped!”
Days like today I’m thankful for silence. Some days I’m thankful for conversation… every day thankful for adult conversation… But right now my voice is getting a rest.
And as I sit here typing, connecting invisibly with you, sunlight is streaming through the window, smiling across my skin, and reminding me that God’s goodness is always there.
If you live near me, you’ll realize I wrote this yesterday. Today it hasn’t stopped raining from the time I woke up until now… But I remember the sunshine from yesterday and smile. 🙂
