In Others’ Words: The Value of Nothing
Add in the non-writing parts of life and there’s not been a lot of “doing nothing” in 2014.
I often find those quiet moments of “nothing” in the middle of the night when I’m awake and everyone else in my house — including all the assorted doggies — are asleep. Silence is indeed golden and often toasted with a cup of my favorite tea. (Constant Comment, anyone? Or Lady Gray?)
And what do I hear when I’m “not bothering“?
Whispers of conversations that encouraged my heart.
Snatches of laughter … always the music of laughter.
The sweet nonsense chatter of my GRANDdaughter, who in her mind, is making complete sense.
The mind-mentions of friends’ names … which turn into prayers for them.
But mostly I savor the stillness, the hush, that’s overtaken the house. There’s not much to hear … but there’s a knowing that loved ones are resting … and God is still awake.
In Your Words: When is the last time you did nothing? What did you hear when you listened “to all the things you can’t hear”? What do you think is the value of “not bothering”?The value of nothing #lifequotes #AAMilne Listening to what you can’t hear #lifequotes #winniethepooh
