I am back to do a Five Minute Friday post again! I love these posts, and I love that I am setting aside time to do them again.
This week, the word is Observant. So, here we go, five minutes, no planning, no editing, just writing!
This is a tough word. There are many other words that could be so much easier for the first time back.
Over the last year, I have become observant of a lot of things.
I am observant of how my kids are dealing with changes, even though we have homeschooled from the beginning, they are still missing out on things and friends.
I am observant of my husband and his health. Things have changed, and I need to know what they are and what happened to possibly cause the changes.
I am observant of my time with my family. I want them to know that I am fully present to be with them when they need me the most.
Finally, I am observant of myself. I have learned that I need to care for myself if I am going to be caring for everyone else. If I am staying up too late, not drinking enough water, or eating crap food, this won’t help me care for everyone else who needs me.
Being observant, in my mind, is making sure that I am quiet and watching. Sometimes asking questions as they come up, but mostly paying attention.
How have you been observant lately?
