Today I am linking up with Lisa Jo over at The Gypsy Mama as we create words without worrying about perfection. We are given a prompt and then we write for just 5 minutes without worrying about whether it’s just right. No back tracking, no editing. Just words freely flowing from my heart.
Today’s Prompt: Loud
The older I get, the more of an aversion I have to loud noises. My children area loud and even though that’s what children do when they play is make loud noises, I find myself telling them to quiet down all too often. Another example is when the family is gathered for a TV show or movie, every few minutes I ask them to turn the volume down. Can you relate? And forget the surround sound. I might as well get up and go off into the next room.
I suppose life is loud. Cars driving, horns honking, children playing, right now my keypad is pretty loud. But I am thankful that I have ears to hear all of the variations of noises that are created on a day to day basis. Some may be too loud for my taste, like when my son screams from the top of the stair case. Oh it sends chills down my spine. But I am thankful for him and for his voice. Too loud or not, the noises that my children make and those that are made as we build memories as a family, I will learn to embrace them.
How about you? Do you have an aversion to loud noises?
