Boredom is not something that I have much experience with.

Not many women who have a husband, children, a job and a house (or any one of the aforementioned) know boredom from experience!

I also avoid boredom …

My (undiagnosed) ADD (attention deficit disorder) makes boredom painful for me. To just sit can become an experience in inner frustration, that can spill over to all around me, resulting in fidgeting, deep and heavy sighs, complaining, and a depressive mood.

Earlier this week … I was bored!

(imagine music from Psycho now)

I was sitting playing a game on my iPad, and I was, uncharacteristically, bored …

until …

I heard the voices upstairs.

The younger pair of our kids were

together

chatting happily

drawing and painting

like they were friends.

After a week and a half of spending time with friends, time with technology, time with … moi,

they have become bored enough to

find the blessing in each other.

This was a moment that they might not cherish.

This was a moment that they will probably not remember when they are adults.

But,

because I was bored,

for just a moment,

I will remember,

and my heart, my mother heart, was filled and fulfilled to witness friendship between my kids.

What a blessing boredom was for me.
