I am a people person – always have been. Yep. Every test I’ve ever taken has confirmed the fact that I am an extrovert. That said, apparently even extroverts have their limits.
Somehow I find that now that I live in a home with six kids, I relish the moments when the world seems absolutely silent. It is exceedingly rare to find a time when the XBOX is off, so is the TV and the ipods, no one is yelling “Dad!” or “Mom!,” there is neither fighting, arguing or crying of any kind.
The moments are rare indeed, but somehow that makes them precious. I’ve never been one for alone time or silence before, but suddenly, I see its value.
