Thanksgiving means a lot of things, but it also means it is the National Day of Listening. It is the day that you are invited to interview a loved one and hear from them some of their story and life. Recently, StoryCorps put out an App for your phone which comes set with all you need to conduct your own interview. It is easy to do and will take about 8 minutes if you don't know what you are doing to get the hang of it.
Even if you don't use your cell phone to record a great conversation with a loved one this Thanksgiving, it is my hope that you will join me in not only giving thanks but opening our ears to listen to others.
God knows we could all use a little more listening these days.
