Develop the power of listening.
We are created with one mouth and two ears. Here is proof that it is more important to listen to what is being said than it is to get our point across.
Me: You know it’s tough living with a perfect person.
Hubby: You seem to manage just fine.
Listening doesn’t always require our ears.
Me (jokingly): How come I’m always waiting on you?
Hubby: Perfection takes time!
…with a three-year-old grandchild…
Grandchild: We are standing by the frigerator.
Mommy: Sometimes she just likes to state facts.
Grandpapa: Yep. She’s a little almanac.
Grandchild…excitedly: Mommy! He called me an omelet!
