The Art of Conversation

Talking.

When we do it for the first time, everyone rejoices!

Your Mama probably remembers your first word, right?

Well, I remember his first word after the first surgery.

“Honey”

That’s ME!!

He can talk.

And then I realized that that was all he could say…

Talking comes so easy to all of us.

We do it everyday.

“Hello”

“How have you been?”

“How are your children?”

“How is your family?’

But, are we really listening to all of the answers?

My plea to you today is to LISTEN.

Listen to the glorious sounds of your loved ones voices.

Just listen.

To your children.

To strangers that you pass on the street.

Relish the art of conversation.

Relish the sound of your own voice.

Hear it.

Better yet, use it.

Challenge yourself to talk and listen.

Remember that first word and how everybody got excited about it?

Say it.

Because you never know when your words will be taken from you.

You never know if you will have to relearn the art of conversation.

It’s beautiful.

So, today, my friends, take a moment and talk.

Listen to the sound of your own voice and rejoice in the fact that it comes so easy to you.

Because one day it might not and you and I both don’t know when that day will be.
