I have been into friends houses where classical music has been gently playing in the background and a truly sweet gentle spirit has been present. I have even commented to them on how peaceful their home has felt. But I could never get my household to show such decorum. We are such a noisy bunch(me included!), and I dare not even TRY and get us to be sweet and gentle...... we are just not that type of family!
We all love to make some sort of noise. Infact I prefer to think of this noise being rather ' wonderful sounds expressed from EXUBERANT hearts' rather than noise!
(Exuberant = joyously unrestrained and enthusiastic (Merriam-Webster Dictinary))
Don't get me wrong...... sweet, gentle and peaceful are great, but I'm not going to bust a garter to try and get my fam to be like that. We are exuberant and I'm proud of it!
