Tonight I am thankful for the steady drumming of the rain on the roof and against the windows. The brilliant flashes of lightening and the occasional rumble of thunder. The drops of moisture that will give our lawn and flowers a much needed drink.
I am thankful for the quietness of the house, as my beloved and our pup sleep after a long and full day. The time to sit and reflect, without interruption, on the week that has passed.....
and the one about to begin.
In our lives, filled with busyness, moments like this can be rare. Moments of stillness and focus. They must be sought out, with purpose, and nurtured.
Be still and listen.
