Have you heard the story of the little boy who one night during dinner was being ignored and decided to make sure everyone around the kitchen table knew he was present? If you are a parent, you know the story. He let out a loud screeching scream that vibrated the dinner plates. His father sent him to his room.
Life is filled with many voices. The people who seem to manage life well are those who listen carefully for the small voices and who are alert for the small things. I’m still learning. Maybe next time I will listen to my son as we sit around the dinner table and he is trying to tell me something that I have already wrote off as unimportant. I guess I was the one that needed to be sent to his room that evening. I am discovering that it could be the small voices that change your life.
