Quiet

Things have been sorta quiet on the blog this week. Sometimes I get tired of listening to myself.

Things have also been really quiet around my house with the kids in school all day long. Everyone is off to a good start and comes home happy each afternoon.

Part of the reason I've been quiet is because I'm trying to find my school-day groove. Adjusting to new carpool schedules. Trying to get back in an exercise groove. Figuring out what commitments I want on my plate. Trying to establish an evening rhythm. Trying to be intentional with my time and with my family. The only thing I seem to have down pat right now is my social schedule and it's been really fun catching up with friends this week!

Part of the reason I've been quiet is because I've been in a funk. Struggling with some hurt and disappointment. It usually takes a lot to hurt my feelings, but a few things have happened lately that have really hurt and it's thrown me for a loop and left me with few words. I've needed some mental space.

Quiet is good. Very good. Quiet feels restful and spacious and full and I'm pretty sure I need much more of it in my life. I'll be back when I need to hear some noise again. (Smile.)

being still (psalm 46:10) is a necessary command for me when I am hurt. I pray you rest in your quiet and feel better.

Relish the quiet. Peace, Mer.

You're in my thoughts and prayers, Mer. May God heal you from the inside out.

I've missed you! I hope you feel better soon. Blessings sweet friend!

I agree...taking time to regroup and refresh yourself is needed more than we allow ourselves. God bless!

i like quiet. i've always been one that is content with just being by myself and sometimes, that is the best medicine. sorry for the hurt. hope you're already in the healing process.

Quiet sounds like exactly what I need, too.

Hugs Mer! I know sometimes I just need to disconnect to. I'm such a homebody...I'm happy when I don't talk to anyone for DAYS. Just time to breath and charge my batteries. I get ya!
Enjoy your quiet. Be kind to yourself!

Praying for you. Quietly. I don't like funks, but I do love meeting God in my quiet places...hang in there.

So sorry you're going through a rough patch. I hate those. It's such a time of transition, too, with school gearing back up and routines changing... just a hard time. I said a prayer for you. Hope you have a much better week with absolutely no funk-ness. (Made-up word, sorry.) Big hugs.

I hear ya! Trying to find a new groove myself. We have a new carpool schedule and I am just not finding time to do anything yet!

I triple heart routine, and am so relieved (again!) to find I'm not the lone ranger.

xo, my amiga.

may the funk flee.

Hope you/your family have a wonderful school year. And I'm in a funk too. I got divorced this summer, sold my business, started a new job as a result (but thank the LORD I am gainfully employed), my 4yo wild monkey son severely broke his arm the day after Doug moved out....*ugh*. Needless to say the start of the school year was a little milestone for me - a chance to get on a schedule, to get settled into our "new" life just me and Adam, and to gratefully tuck the crappy summer into the history books. Peace out. haha.
