Feel rushed? I do almost every day. Sometimes I’m rushed in the morning to get ready, especially if I linger over my coffee. Sometimes I’m rushed to get copies in the morning prior to the bell ringing. Sometimes I’m rushed to get the kids to school prior and make it to work on time.
But in the rushed moments, I’m learning to notice.
Seeing my daughter allows me a moment to notice her beautiful hair and comment. Waiting on the copy machine allows me to notice a fellow teacher I rarely see. Morning drives allow me to notice the birds swarming near the trees.
Noticing? It’s not easy. But if I’m not noticing and listening, I may miss the beauty and comforts around me.
What have you noticed today?
