My friend Kathy has a way with words, her style of writing paints a beautiful picture, no matter the subject. She recently wrote about listening and reminded me that my ears are not the only component involved with being a good listener. I was reminded to listen with my eyes. My intent is never to marginalize the person who is speaking but I fear that I do so, without thinking. And honestly, in the scramble of daily life, I may do many more things than I realize, without thinking.
I appreciated the pleasant reminder and I will start this day, ready to really listen.
