I want to begin this blog by thanking my followers and those who stumble across my humble words and links. It has been an exciting time for me to read and then share the ‘gems’ that I find. I do hope that you have been as encouraged, helped and challenged as I have! So, a big thankyou from the bottom of my heart for your support and interest, it means so much!
As this year drew to a close, we did a little exercise with our kids where we reflected on the good things of the year, the difficult things and even the bad! I was surprised that as we finished one of the boys piped up suggesting that we talk about the things that we are looking forward to next year, the things we are not and the things we want to change. And, they were very interested in Mum and Dad’s answers!
It made me realise how capable children are of sharing and listening when we give them the time and the space. They love to be listened to and to know what is happening in adult’s lives.
Listening and sharing is such a powerful thing and yet at times it is such a difficult thing for us as adults to do. May you find the time to listen to those around you, and be brave to share some of your dreams and challenges with them.
