A Rare Treat

Aaaahhhh! What a glorious treat I am enjoying and just thought I would share. What is that treat you say? Why it is the treat of silence. A quiet house with nothing but the crackle of the fire to break the stillness of this evening. A cup of hot chocolate perfectly rounds off this rare treat. My oldest daughter had ice skating lessons tonight and so my husband took both of the children with him. I am left home alone.....Even though we mothers love our children and spouses dearly, we need some time every now and then to simply be still. In fact our dear Lord and Father teaches us that we need to be still. It is in the stillness that we can feel his peace completely. So ladies, take a little bit of time to be still and just be. Have a blessed evening.

I love moments like this once in a while- and it sounds so cozy with the fireplace and hot chocolate! For me I would just need a good blanket, chair, and a thick book to make it the perfect night. Oh, and candles of course. Hope you had a nice evening!

I had a wonderfully refreshing few hours, thank you. Can I just say that my husband is wonderful?!
