The message today was to listen.  As I move into the last month of my 40’s and the 2.0’s are moving out I have been trying to listen and be in the moment.  Over the years, I have too often been interested in the what’s on the tv, my phone, or something else happening around me that prevented me from having a conversation.  How many times have I missed having a meaningful conversation with my kids or M when they needed the attention.  Time is fleeting and it doesn’t last.  Take the opportunity to be involved and engaged no matter how big or how small.

“Happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour.” – Walt Whitman
