On Listening

Three things we can all do today
to pause a moment just to pray
to be a friend both tried and true
and find some good that we can do

.......William A.Ward

When I read this the first thing that pops into my mind of
"SOME GOOD THAT WE CAN DO" comes listening.

Because to listen is easy. To listen to your friends, to your husband, to your children. To give time for listening, to stay in one place and let people know you are there and ready to listen !

Do not pick up the phone !

Listen to everything everyone has to say today,

tommorow is for something else,

Reacting !!!

The "Do not pick up the phone!" on your post! really made me chuckle. The interesting thing about not picking up your phone all the time is when you do go to make a phone call and speak to someone it becomes more of an event and more special and you become a better listener. If the phone is just a distraction from listening you never hear anyone. I am trying to listen to my kids more--although it is hard with the mounds of laundry we are all buried under ;) Thanks for your post on listening.
