A to Z 2019 April Blogger Challenge The Letter Q - Shhh

It's April - That means I will be participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge.

I will be posting six days a week for the month of April - (with a rest day on Sunday).
Each post will begin with the corresponding letter of the alphabet beginning with A and finishing with the letter Z.

I began participating in this challenge in 2012.   With the exception of last year, I believe I completed the challenge each year.   Last year I lost steam somewhere around the letter W.

Quiet, Please

I consider myself to be a quiet person.  I've always been.  Quiet people are usually quite misunderstood.   Some people assume that quiet people are not interested in communicating.  And perhaps that is true for some.   And sometimes it's true for me.  But, mostly quiet people wind up being good listeners.   I am a good listener. 
I am married to someone who is not a quiet person.   But unlike some non-quiet people, Ross is also a good listener.   
My favorite time of the day is early morning.   I am usually up before Ross.  It's my quiet time.   It became my routine when my children were little.  I would get up before the kids to have a few minutes to myself. 
I suppose writing is a form of quiet communication.  It allows me to be alone with my thoughts while also quietly communicating. 


  1. I know what you mean. During a very loud day, I'm quite happy to lock the classroom door and not let any kiddos in for a quiet lunch.

    1. I can imagine how peaceful it must be to have the classroom to yourself. I'm sure a quiet lunch is just what you need.

  2. My idea of peace and contentment is a quiet house where I'm all alone. No music playing. Just quiet. I thrive on that. You are doing great with the challenge! Hang in there!


    1. Thanks for the encouragement about the challenge. I needed that :) Ahh, the quiet. I know what you mean.
