Listen to the morning as you start your day,
listen to your children as they laugh and play.
Listen to your little one say his ABC’s
listen to the wind as it whispers through the trees.
Listen to the birds sing more than just a tweet,
listen to the leaves as they crunch beneath your feet.
Listen to great grandma tell her story one more time,
listen to your granddaughter sing yet another rhyme.
Listen to your teenager share all her fears and joy,
listen to the quiet as you rock your baby boy.
Listen to the raindrops and listen to the snow,
listen to the moments and cherish them so.

Busy Life Pause

Sometimes the events in the day-to-day life cause the moments of the day to slip through our hands. Today is one of a kind and it has been so graciously given to you. In the day-to-day and the week to week of life find time to pause, breathe and listen to the wonderful moments around you.

Enjoy the moments in your day!
