“Hear the meaning within the word.”
— William Shakespeare
So many words are written everyday. So many words spoken.
So much is said, yet so little is heard.
However, when we really take the time to understand what we read and to hear what is spoken, we reach a deeper understanding.
Listening is a skill that can be developed. It’s a skill that is vastly under appreciated, except by those who need to be heard.
The written word and the spoken word pale in comparison to the word that is heard.
Today’s gift of time … Helped the Conestoga Middle School teachers pack and move their supplies. I tried to lend a sympathetic ear and a genuine smile where I could.
