That got me thinking (oh no, thinking again and in a sleep-deprived state!) ... moments of pure calm are few and far between and I realized it's probably because I haven't given my brain a rest. Normally my mind is a jumble of worries, thoughts, plans, ideas, etc. While watching my sweet mom, I focused just on her, to savor the view of her resting peacefully and everything else just went by the wayside. I was finally able to hear Him because I was QUIET.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
