if you can scratch out a few moments to just listen to all the sounds outside, the birds, the rushing sound of a car splashing through puddles, dogs barking off in the distance, all the while finding a second to gulp your coffee up while it is still hot, well, I think that would make it just so.
This week I am hoping to be a bit more mindful of the quiet and the loud. mindful of our family and the way we can create a bit more space for being together, even when we are at our separate corners of our (very tiny) house. I will try to be mindful of the quiet amidst all this chaos around me -some days it is just so hard to do. Though there are times I am not quite as present as I would like to be, I AM hoping to be a bit more mindful...maybe even mindful enough to: listen in on the quiet, gulp down some coffee while its still hot, all the while enjoying every second the boys are very loud, and very inside the house.
