The Gift of Quiet

Gift Giving

I was gifted quiet time today. I’ve written previously at my amazement with how much quiet time I need. I need to process. I need to think. I need to conjure new ideas. I need simple quiet. I need to have no interruptions. I need uninterrupted time to do all that processing.

A new person in my life thinks I helped her. Neat. I’m very glad. But, to show me how thankful she is, she has gifted me more or less 5 coffees at her coffee shop. That’s like 5 hours of uninterrupted time. That’s 5 different occasions where I can visit this neighborhood coffee shop without any tagalongs, chatting, questions, and other demands of my time. I could stretch this out over five months. One day a month, all to me.

I am excited. I am thrilled. I am thankful.
