Get home from work, watch about an hour of tv and de-stress (sometimes his will be at the gym), do some light tidying, shower so I'm not rushing in the morning, and now. Everything is done. The only sound is the sound of my window unit air conditioner. Occasionally I'll quietly play a record or two; most nights I'll spend some time reading.
There's something perfect in this hour. The whole house is quiet and if the light in my reading nook is off because I'm reading my kindle instead of a physical book (not tonight!) the only light comes from the glow of a street light. Even looking outside has peace to it.
As I soak into this routine, I'm thankful that God has gave this time to me.
Everyone needs a little peace.
