One of the things I like to do with my little boy is play "Stop, Look & Listen." It's very easy. Just like the name suggests, I will call out "Stop!" which means freeze. Then I say "Look! Listen!" and we start to name things we can see or hear. Today we played several times and we heard birds chirping, geese squawking, & grass crunching under our feet. We saw the bright sun, the blue sky, "naked trees" and wispy clouds. Such a simple thing to do, but sometimes very profound. How often we need to stop, look and listen and just be in the moment.
Look! We examined many rocks today.
Listen! We heard several different bird calls. Sounded like Spring.
So grateful for a warm first day of February!
