We had a quiet night around our house last night. The kids played, read, and generally just hung out. The Queen took care of a few things she needed to address. I read a little bit, got some things updated on our computers, and kissed everyone at least twice.
At some point the Queen commented how much she loved moments like last night. Me too.
Compare that to the debate last night - loud, abrasive, interruptive, and so on.
Which is your life more like? Sometimes our pace and volume puts us on one side when we wish we were on the other. But the choices are definitely ours and the good is so often found outside of the task list.
But that's just me thinking thoughts...
