National Day of Listening

For the past few years I have been participating in the National Day of Listening (I mentioned this last year on this blog).  This is a wonderful time for my family to get in a recorded form some stories about our lives so that they may be preserved for family down the road.  While most of our conversations at this point are not as reflective or deep as those compiled in the book Listening is an Act of Love (which is excellent by the way), they are conversations I cherish.

So if you have just a bit of time this Thanksgiving holiday, and you are like me and tired of making crafts, watching football, overeating and participating in some sort of group exercise in order to justify the overeating, then join many others and listen to the stories of your loved ones.
