exhale slowly, & close your eyes.
Hear the many sounds around you...
the creek of the old floor boards, a basket of blocks being dumped on the rug, a pot on the stove bubbling, the zipper on a backpack, imagination coming to life in a 5 year old's room, a bottle of seltzer opening, the table being set...
the sounds of family surrounding you in your home.
Soak it all in, and enjoy every moment of those precious sounds.
