But sometimes, it’s so great to have the whole house to myself, for a day, or even an hour.
I can leave the door open when I go to the bathroom. I can turn the radio up really loud, on MY favorite station. I can sing out and be as off-key as I can stand. I can dance around in my under wear. I CAN START TWO OR THREE PROJECTS AT THE SAME TIME. I can burp without saying excuse me (although I still do excuse myself).
When I was younger and raising my children, I found it was almost impossible to get even a moment alone. If you found that moment it was usually if the middle of the night and you had to be very quiet if you wanted to dance or sing.
I guess there’s a little “Risky Business” secret life in all of us.
I need a certain amount of alone time?
But even with all this wonderful freedom of alone time, as the evening comes, and the sky darkens, that empty lonely feeling creeps into the heart. I begin to long for the noise, and company of having people around. I miss them. I think about how lucky I am to have people in my life or at the reach of a phone call.
It makes me smile when my husband gets home to our little castle, even if I just get a hug, and he goes to his main goal of checking out the ball game on TV, or catching up with his emails. Thank goodness that life is made up of variety, in the “slices of life”.
Some of the sweetest moments in life are the simple things, and are so often taken for granted. They are like a slow sigh in the middle of a busy day….RELISH THEM! LIKE THE CHERRY ON TOP OF THE SUNDAE.
