What do you miss?
I've been thinking about the quiet tonight. Sloane is gone and it makes our house feel uncharacteristically quiet and empty. It's funny how one person can fill a space and make it breathe with laughter and joy. My parents gave Sloane a trip to Alaska for her birthday. She's going to see a dogsled race, ride a dogsled, and, if the weather cooperates, see the Northern Lights. I'm so excited for her I can hardly stand it.
I guess tonight I'm just thinking about my baby. Missing her. Just now I miss the sound of her. The slow, quiet breathing when she is asleep. The giggles and laughter when we are playing. The non-stop chatter all the rest of the time. I miss the sound of her.
What do you miss when your loved ones are away?
