My Quiet House

I am back in my quiet house after spending 4 days and nights with 200+ girls at a church camp.  The fact that I can only hear the clock ticking and my fingers clicking on the keyboard right now is music to my ears.  No crazy Pink Pajama or Shark or Jacob Jingle Heimer Smith Songs being blasted in my ears.  The silence is a beautiful sound.

Don't get me wrong, I had a great time, but it is nice to be home.

Sure, I'd love to have a home filled with the laughter of children, but today I will enjoy my quiet home.  As I drove home from camp I was reminded that this weekend is Father's Day and that my husband has not yet fulfilled his desire to be a father.  Someday he will get "World's Best Dad" mugs and cards.  I hope that someday comes soon.  But today and this weekend and I try to help him feel of my love and appreciation for him and try to help him have a good weekend.


  1. I just got back from camp a couple of days ago too. So glad to be home, even though I had a great time. Teenage girls are FUNNY!!! We laughed and laughed most of the time.

  2. I did not just get back from camp and am very happy about it. Glad you had fun camping and that the noise and craziness of it made your quiet house more enjoyable, if only for the moment.

    I know what you mean about the father's day thing. My DH has 3 girls (all grown) from his first marriage...and there was almost no relationship between them for whatever reason. When he and I first got together, they never called, or wrote, or stopped by for his birthday or Christmas, let alone Father's Day....I am just glad that we were blessed enough with our little miracles that he will always have tons of hugs and kisses on Father's Day. Wishing the same to you and yours....

  4. Quiet after spending time with lots of kids is definitely something to be treasured.

    I hope you are blessed with parenthood soon.


  5. Love the optimisim in your title and in your post... sounds like quite a fun weekend! Glad you survived. ;-)
