The late Singer Rita Mc Neill in her song Rolling Thunder asks us a simple question ” have you ever stood outside and watched the sky in wonder?”. as we get into this time of Christmas and look forward to all our little traditions and rituals I have a little suggestions to make. In the midst of all the rushing take a little time to go outside and just watch the sky in wonder.This will help to slow you down and perhaps then reflect on the wonder of your life and the wonder if those who are close to you. Just stop in wonder, be present to yourself and then you will be more likely to give the gift of your presence to another in the days ahead. Real listening and presence is so precious and rare, and really needed.
