Trying to be still and wait while counting down days is a challenge. We easily fall into the habit of planning for what's coming up and miss out on what's going on right now.
If you be still and listen, you'll hear rustling leaves and splashing water. If you look......really look, you'll notice the sun is at a different angle today. If you take a deep breath you'll catch the fragrance released by leaves you brush against. All subtle notes to our senses, but when examined and appreciated.....miracles of our world.
