Flowing, Listening, Reflecting

Going with the flow. Last night we planned what our day would look like today. This morning plans were changing as quickly as the weather.

A person who was supposed to come in the early morning decided they couldn't come till late afternoon. Another person who had said she wasn't coming, showed up and stirred the pot resulting in unnecessary drama. And a caller who we hardly ever hear from called in the midst of it all. Some mornings are like that. Needless to say, we got off to a much later start than we had anticipated.

As I moved through the day, I listened closely. This is what I heard. 

Sometimes it’s best to stay out of the way. Family relationships can be fertile ground for growth and healing to take place. Not taking things personally can save you and also save the day. Helping each other out is like a warm cozy blanket on a cold night. Exploring new places opens the mind. Listening to people in order to hear rather than how to react is a skill worth learning. It’s a peaceful place to be content being in the moment.

Even thistles in bloom have their own beauty.
