Since I wrote about being over-extended a few weeks ago, I’ve been making an effort to pay more attention. When you are constantly multi-tasking, when you’re doing one thing while thinking about the next thing, it’s too easy to not see what you should see and not hear what you should hear.
Last night I’d been sitting at the computer late, looking through the Recreation Department’s winter activities catalog to find a fun class for one of my girls. I’d been jotting ideas on a small sticky note pad that I left on the kitchen table. This morning, as she ran out the door to go to school, one of my girls called back over her shoulder “I left you a note on your computer!”
My girls leave me many messages of love in many ways. I’m paying better attention.
