There's Something About An Earlier Walk

I was walking Toby, our 11-year old yellow lab, earlier than usual this morning, And, I found myself thinking about quiet. Toby and I usually get passed by cars driven by harried people rushing to work, school buses, and parents zipping their kids to daycare or school. I can almost feel their hurry. Today was different. Few cars were out. The world felt calm. Quiet. Peaceful.

With all the noise we live in, we need to search for a time of quiet. Time to let go of negativity and fill ourselves with peace and positive thoughts. It's something many of us are missing these days. A need we may try to fill with things unhealthy things like candy, chips, or TV marathons. It's time we try working on our quiet today...
