A Thought For Your Weekend

“It’s okay if every weekend doesn’t lead to big moments and campfires and laughter that carries on hours and hours. Some weekends might be quiet. Still, with plenty of room to contemplate. And in that contemplation there is room to grow. So hold those weekends dear. Don’t see them as less or as threats to the more exciting times. There is beauty and truth even in the seemingly mundane.” ~ Morgan Harper Nichols

Are You Listening?

How true is this? Although I hate to admit it, sometimes it is true for me! What about you? Pay attention to your communications. How often do you find yourself concentrating on one or two statements made by the other person with whom you are speaking, and in your head, instead of listening, you are framing your response to those statements? While we are doing so, how can we listen? Although it may be difficult, let’s give the gift of listening to with whom we are speaking. Have a great weekend!
