Listening out for God

I met a friend today who only recently met my sister for the first time. She said she could barely pay attention to what my sister was saying because she was so distracted by her mannerisms being so like mine. In particular, the way she inclines her head when she is listening to someone.
There is much to be said for active and affirmative listening. The kind of listening practiced by Mary when she listened to God's messenger outlining God's plan that she should carry the Son of God and her immediate response: Your will be done.
On this day of Annunciation, what might we hear God saying to us and to what might we say yes?
