Do you ever just listen? I have three boys and sometimes when I am in the house I just stop and listen. Today I was in the kitchen and I stopped to listen. I had just allowed my oldest to look up a Youtube video of 911.

As I stood around the corner  and listened to the words of the song ‘Where were you when the world stopped turning” I was given a glimpse of something. My boys, ages 9, 11 & 13, listened to the words and tried to process the horrific event they cannot remember.

Listening, not participating, gave me the chance to see through their eyes. To hear their thoughts. To observe the world from their point of view.

Do you stop and listen? Yes, this works in the barn too.
