For a few glorious minutes this morning, all was quiet. The children entertained themselves in various corners of the house while I enjoyed a few moments of not having to get on to someone for something. There was peace throughout the land. So caught off guard was I by this phenomenon, I simply wandered around taking pictures of it instead of using the peace and quiet for any sort of productivity. I don't know how it happened, or why, but I appreciated every second of it.
Like all good things, this soon came to an end.
I will forever treasure the memory of these ten minutes.
