Listening

ahhh a new year...another opportunity to really listen to what people are trying to tell you.
Yesterday we had a lovely breakfast with our three wishes and asked them what they would like to accomplish in 2012.  Just listening to them made me so comforted and calm.
    Ethan had very specific goals like taking drum lessons,
starting MMA fighting and reading the Bible more.
 Cameron said he wanted to invent something having to do with gaming.  He had a clear picture of what he wants to do in his mind and we encouraged him to write down the
   ideas he was having and how he would go about creating his invention. He also expressed that he wanted another kitten.  I thought that was so brave of him since we just lost Max.
  Madison stated she wanted to serve more at the animal shelter, she wanted to start gymnastics
   when cheerleading ends.
My children's goals, dreams and wishes are my goals, dreams and wishes...To encourage them and assist them however I can is a pleasure and a joy.  Listening to them talk about the new year gives me hope and a smile that they also listen to us...to embrace what we are teaching them about God, helping others, love and life lessons.  What are the people you love trying to tell you today? With a new day comes new ways to listen.  Hope you have a lovely day!
