Lying Around: Getting to Quiet

Lying AroundSome of my most memorable times with the girls come from the quiet. The quiet that comes from long periods of unplanned, unstructured time, where the agenda is to have no agenda—no time limits, no place to go. I love when I can follow their lead, stay until they ask to go, and bask in the quiet… Because when we make peace with that quiet, give it space, and don’t try to fill it, you never know what can come next.
