13 Things I’ve Learned Not Speaking: Day 5
For the most part, today was productive and funny. I guess we’re getting as used to this as we can. As of this morning, 3 full days left and a few hours beyond. I’m on the down slope now 🙂
And again, in no particular order…
- You can’t think on negative thoughts for too long simply because most of them require action on our part to “feed” the thoughts.
- When everyone’s not home, it is a lot easier but when they are home and none of us are talking, it makes me feel more alone. Guess I prefer that everyone sound like they’re having a conversation with themselves 😀
- You can scare someone without sound.
- Watching your husband imitate a crab walking WILL make you laugh out loud.
- Adaptations have to be made during situations you would normally speak. You have to think outside of the box for sure.
- People send you funny texts which makes you try really hard not to laugh out loud.
- Tears happen again but only because I needed my husband to say to me what I wanted so badly to say to him.
- Letters are still a meaningful form of communication.
- Apparently I’m awful at charades and if we ever play a game, my husband is not going to be on my team!
- If someone crosses your mind, if you do anything at all, send them a random text. You don’t know how much just that small gesture might mean.
- I’m not so rushed. Not sure if it’s only because I have no where to go or if I’m really just feeling kind of at peace.
- My husband misses my laugh.
- I read a quote yesterday that said something so profound. It describes how I’m feeling during this whole thing thus far: “We do not need extraordinary moments for God to show up.”
