When I was a little girl my favorite gifts were dolls and anything musical. When I became a teenager I loved getting money and anything musical. In my early twenties gifts of money and anything musical still topped my list. However, now in my 30s with a husband and 4 children, the best gift you can give me can’t be found in any store. Plus, if it could be purchased, it would be out of stock because I would buy all the inventory. That priceless gift is SILENCE!
I used to hate silence, pauses in conversation, or when no one was around. Now I would love to have more time to just THINK. To allow a thought to initiate and have the opportunity to pursue it, explore it, research it, write about it, and shape it into something tangible. Can I just THINK without interruption? That’s all this mom of 4 wants. I’m a creative person, so not having the ability to operate that way is torture.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my family, but I do fantasize about running off to Silence Island where there is no one but me & my thoughts.
I think it’s time for a “mommy-cation!” Anyone know where Silence Island is?
