It was night of waking. So this morning when I woke before an alarm to dogs pacing and a baby calling over the monitor I stumbled down the hall disoriented and dazed. As I tried coaxing my daughter back to sleep I began hearing noises coming from downstairs. At first a rustling and footsteps had me on guard, but I don't know any intruders that put their dishes in the dishwasher.
Making my way downstairs with an alert baby, I found my husband awake and getting ready for the day. He too had a night of waking and had come downstairs to not disturb me when he got up early.
I'm grateful to have a thoughtful husband. I'm grateful to find my family the source of the noises in the dark. I'm grateful to live in a safe neighborhood. I'm grateful to muster the energy to drag myself out of bed when needed. I'm grateful for lights to illuminate the dark at the flip of a switch.
What noises do you hear at night? What is your favorite noise to hear upon waking?
May today bless our ears with positive, supportive sounds. Have a beautiful day!
