Take Away 135 - Listening

I got the opportunity to sit and listen to a friend this week.  I forget sometimes how important it is to put aside everything else when taking time to listen.  I am grateful for the reminder.

TAKE AWAY: Put the cell phone away, mark out the time
on my calendar and listen to others; give them my full attention.
Who doesn't want to be heard?

Take Away 134 - Making Plans

This week I finally decided to nail down a week for a future vacation. I filled out the vacation request. The supervisor signed it. We've been tossing around ideas for months now and I realized that if I just nailed down the date, it would give my husband something to work with.  So I did. And he did. Make plans. When he hits the "buy" button, we will have a very exciting destination. I'm not revealing it until that button has been pushed and there's no going back. Don't you just love a mystery?

TAKE AWAY: Make plans one step at a time.
I'm always learning new things about my relationships.
Love that!
