"Sometimes the most important thing in the whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths, or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes." ~ Etty Hillsum
There is a calming sense that washes over me when I take a moment to focus in between two breaths. Sometimes I even close my eyes and whisper a silent Thank You. It reminds and grounds me to the many Blessings in my day. If I don't stop and acknowledge them....they are lost! The value and nourishment that was so sweetly intended slips away and becomes harder to see the next time.
There is strength, wisdom and momentum that can build from such a brief silence... all we need to do is listen.
