Sweet Sound

I'm listening to a sweet sound.

I'm holed up back in my bedroom, doing research, answering emails, studying, writing.

But out in the family room, just beyond my door, I can hear it.

That sweet, sweet sound.

It's my four oldest children and a friend.

They are talking. Conversing. Laughing.

Telling stories, reflecting, sharing.

Enjoying each other's company and exchanging dialog.

My kids. Talking as friends.

It's beautiful. Eavesdropping. Eavesdropping on a goal of parenting, that hope that after growing up in your home, your children will find friendship with each other.

What a blessing.

What a sweet sound.
