Pay attention

Instructions for living a life. 
Pay attention. 
Be astonished. 
Tell about it.” 

― Mary Oliver, poet,
who died yesterday at the age of 83

I’m don’t spend much time with poetry but I have loved the words of Mary Oliver. These words are going into my notebook so I can carry them closely. Such very good advice.

As I have been working on letting REST become a practice and a rhythm, I have become aware of how un-restful my days can be. With a calendar and list of things to do it is easy to move through the hours without paying attention. This day, I plan to walk with my eyes wide open, paying attention, and best of all, ready to be astonished.

Our tiny person’s mama is home in the summer so our schedules are a bit different but we still get to have plenty of play time. He loves duplo blocks, gears, and cars and his Grampa. Grampa is a good playmate and can do fun things like juggling and magic tricks.

I love to peek in on these #tinytinymoments.
