What Do You Miss?

The weekly Five Minute Friday word prompt for this week is “loud.”

Over these last several months, life has been so uncertain. I’ve loved the time I’ve had with my kitties. But to be honest, there is so much I miss. I can’t wait until the day we get to hear those sweet sounds, hug those we love and not live life in the midst of a pandemic.

I miss the sound of sports fans in stadiums. It’s just not quite the same with virtual fans.

I miss gathering in worship without a mask on. I miss the sounds of children laughing and people conversing over coffee.

I miss the loud sounds of theater and music concerts. My heart is so ready to watch a concert with friends. But until then I’ll just blare my favorite tunes all over my house.

I miss seeing friends and family’s smiles and faces!

Oh how I miss this and so much more. I can’t wait to hear those sweet loud sounds again. What do you miss hearing, friends?

And for fun, here’s an oldie but a goody that I love to jam out too!

  1. I am grateful that I can visit my Mom for a half hour outside, but I miss being able to help her with her meals and spend a full day with her. I am sad that there won’t be big ten college football. But because my daughter has chosen to homeschool this year and needs help, I will see the grandchildren every Tuesday afternoon. That is a blessing.

  2. The question of missed noise makes think of an early episode of The Walking Dead. In the silence of the apocalypse, several survivors discuss how quiet it is and how much they miss noise. In their reality, silence is danger because the Walkers (zombies, if you don’t watch) may be drawn to the people by the noise they make. I wonder if I, too, miss being able to hide in the “noise” of pre-covid life. I know not all the noise was bad. I miss going to the movies, which I never did much of before, but I would sure love to now. My husband, like you, hates those virtual sports fans. You know how your ears hurt after a concert, when the silence is painful? I think that’s where I am now. It hurts, but that previous level of noise couldn’t be sustained indefinitely. Thanks for lots of good thoughts today.

  3. I miss those rhythms too.I am glad the change has reminded us of our ability to be creative and implement new ones. But connecting to others more intimately is so vital to our sense of being. That song is a favorite.

  4. Tara, I miss some sounds too. The sounds of a full congregation singing worship songs to the Lord, loud laughter from some of my family members.

    I am thankful I am able to still see my parents and one sister’s family on occasion. I’m thankful God meets us, even in the missing, and reminds us He’s with us always.
