No matter where you are there are all types of noises that you cannot stand. When you are in a restaurant the noises around you dishes clanking, people talking about their life, server’s talking about what is going on in their life, music playing, and other noises that make you lose your train of thought. When you go to sleep at night and you lye in your bed looking at the ceiling trying to go to sleep but the noises around you keep you from going to sleep. It could be a rattle of the fence surrounding your home, birds chirping before they go to sleep for the night, the children running in and out of their bedrooms, the dog barking at the children for picking on him (Sham loves it of course) or anything else. It is the littlest noises that keep you from getting that good nights sleep. Sometimes it is hard to turn your brain off with everything that is going on in the world today. It is the quiet silence that drives a person insane. When the children went away for a couple of days the house was so silent and hard to bare. It is just not the same when you do not have noises around you like you always have. Sometimes you will turn on everything in your house just to make it sound like they are there. Well sometimes people cannot handle being in quiet surroundings. The only time the house is quiet right now is bright and early in the morning when we are having coffee, and listening to the birds chirp while the children are sleeping. I would not trade anything in the world for the noises that I hear on a daily basis. I believe that I would go insane when the children grow up and leave the house to start their own lives. It will be a sad day when that happens but hopefully, with everything that is going on in the world today they will stick close by instead of going far away from home.
