This week Mama Kat asks what is your favorite time of day. My favorite time is any time I can be quiet and focused, something I wrote about in 2011.

Find your own quiet center and write from that to the world. ~Sarah Orne Jewett
Raising a family it is hard to find quiet anywhere, let alone your own quiet center. But quiet is essential. You must spend time in quiet to know what you think and where you stand on issues. Quiet is required for prayer and strengthening your faith. And dreams can not take form in a cacophony.
I started this blog in an effort to find my own quiet center, and the writing has helped me do just that. It is not that I have experienced an epiphany about what lies at my core, but the writing quite literally has helped me put into words what it is that I value most.
