The Gift of Listening

If we give one gift today, let it be the gift of listening. In a world where people have little patience for one another, the ability to stop and listen has become very rare.  How difficult is it for us to hear the pain of someone who suffers, or the fear of someone who seeks shelter, or the sorrow of someone who's loved one has just died? Let us truly listen with compassion to all who are in need, for that is the greatest gift we can give today.

If I am quiet enough I may be able to hear the wind whisper
