Today, with the boys away at grandma’s for the day, the house is silent. I made homemade guacamole (just lime juice, a couple shots of tabasco, and avocado diced, not smashed.) I read from my current book (The Middle Place, by Kelly Corrigan…book reviews coming soon.) I listened to an old Delirious worship album while sewing a new camera bag for myself for spring/summer. I prepared our taxes. I had phone conversations with two good friends…one regarding our families’ church searches, the other regarding newborns. I was refreshed, renewed, reinvigorated. I almost drove out to the peruvian restaurant I love to get myself a treat of fried plantains, but meditated on the anguish Jesus must have been feeling at the last supper instead. I savored the silence. Oh, but I wasn’t lonely…I had a little friend resting there beside me as I was sewing. Have a wonderful Easter!
