It is Friday. Thank God. It isn't that I had a bad week or am stressed out. I just really love Fridays. Sitting on my sofa, sipping a beer and reading a really good book make a perfect beginning to my weekend. I have a few moments of silence. I do not have children and my dog is sleeping. I am breathing in the scents and sounds of my home. The silence allows me to free my mind. It is both comforting and energizing at the same time.
What I love about silence is that you have nothing else to focus on except for the here and now. You look within yourself. If you sit in silence long enough, you even connect with yourself. I become more appreciative of my life and I seem to pray more when my mind is free. A few moments of silence, on a Friday evening, is a perfect gift from God.
