Ponder This.

"If we only listened with the same passion that we feel about being heard."
--Harriet Lerner

Listen whole heartedly. Ask questions. Show someone you care. Remember, and then talk about it with them later to show them that you were really truly listening and that they really truly matter.


  1. Awesome reminder! Thanks! I need to get this put somewhere where I can see it. In our house we are often so passionate about speaking we cut each other off. Sometimes the kids suffer because it takes them longer to pull their thoughts together and we stampede over their half complete sentences. I have been actually reminding my hubby mid conversation---|"let him finish" (quietly) Thanks for this!

    1. I know. I just loved this quote. I have a pretty big family, and so this is a good reminder when their are so many voices in one house that need to be heard.
