I have 6 young sons so there is a LOT of noise at our house. Having time alone with no noise is a rare occurrence. But I've really come to love the sounds that are a part of my life when I take time to listen. I can identify which kid is walking into my room by their different footsteps. The heavy slaps of the 3 year old's fat feet are the most distinct. My favorite is music: the older boys playing the piano and clarinet. The 3rd grader improving on that blasted recorder. The jibber jabber of the baby is music to my ears! These are the sounds of my life.
