Writer's Workshop; If These Walls Could Talk...

If these walls could talk, they would speak not of countless hours spent vaccuming the floors. Not of the unsurmountable amount of laundry washed daily. Not of the dishes left in the sink.

If these walls could talk, they would not speak of countless arguments my husband and i had, only to make up hours later. Not of the times I yelled at the kids because I had had enough for the day. Not of tears cried in solitude of a mother who is stressed.

Instead these walls would speak of laughter. Of Sunday mornings spent lounging in bed watching cartoons. Of water fights with the hose. Of fresh baked (from scratch) chocolate chip cookies.

They would speak of family time spent 'round the dinner table. Talking about our days. Of trips to the park or the zoo. Of time spent building lego houses and cars. Of nights spent rocking the newest of the brood to sleep.

If these walls could talk , they would remember the good, forget the bad. Recall warm memories, cast away negative thoughts.

If these walls could talk, they would speak of love. life.laughter

They would speak of a happy home.
