It's been a beautiful year, but just like every year, it feels like it flew by and I missed so much. My babies are growing and I'm losing moments. I can't collect those precious seconds fast enough before they flutter away. Last year my word and focus was "Diligence". I don't think I came very close to reaching it. This year, I'm taking a completely different tactic:

Do less.

Do much less.

Do less talking. Do less hurrying. Do less. Stop. Breathe. Listen. Hush.


Listen to those little voices before they are grown-up voices.

Listen to those deepening man-voices before they are gone.

Listen to branches crackling under the weight of ice. Listen to water in the creek. Listen to wind in leaves.

Listen to the words that aren't being spoken but that are screaming from young hearts all the same.

You can't listen while you lecture.


...make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands...1 Thess 4:11


  1. LOVE! Sounds a lot like the plan I have too!

  2. I need to do this too. I've done TOO MUCH. Thank you for the reminder. :)
