When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. Isaiah 43:2

The Truth Is...

Sometimes, it is not necessary to share whatever pops into your head. This is a little trick that most people learned a long time ago, but I'm new to it. And, it takes some self control on my part.

My instinct is to share...and share...and share...

And, there are SOME people who have liked that about me--like my parents, who had no one else to listen to BUT me as I grew up an only child.

But recently, I've realized, other people like to talk too! And it is nice to listen to them, ask them questions about themselves, really get to the heart of who they are in a conversation.

I have grown to love and appreciate and learn from those in my life who take the time to listen. This includes my husband, the best listener I know.

Random thought for the day. The end.
