Be a Good Listener

If you want to be a good communicator you must be a good listener.  A good listener looks at the person talking.   She does not think about a dozen other things that needs to be done.  If you want to connect with your children, your husband, or co worker stop, look, and listen.  Try it.  It will make a difference.  It is hard though.  At least it has been for me.  My mind keeps wandering and I have to bring it back.
Have a great day!

I try as well, but my impatience gets the best of me. Thanks for the reminder!

Very true words! Sometimes when I'm having a problem or a bad day, I don't need anything other than a chance to have someone listen to me so I can get it out of my system or work through the problem out loud. They don't need to agree with me, or solve my problems for me, or even rant with me. They just need to listen and show me they care.

Wow! I didn't see you in my ladies Bible study this evening, but you had to be there, this was our topic!
Great post!
