I am surrounded by noise all day. It however is not by definition noise to me. It is the sound of small children. Learning. Playing. Laughing.
At home, it's the sound of busyness. It's the sound of loud voices. It's the sound of my children.
I enjoy noise. Because it reminds me that I am not alone. I reminds me that I am a mother. I have a purpose.
I am loved by the noise-makers.
