A magical thing happened one Saturday! My sweet husband took our toddler to the donut shop and left me in a clean and quiet house. I sat on the couch and soaked up the silence.
My ears rang
for minutes on end,
trying to acclimate
to the lack of noise & bustle.
have I appreciated more,
my dog’s snoring,
& my cup of cold coffee,
as I did in that moment.
A moment to breathe.
