listening to your story
I enter your world
Today on my other blog I’m talking about how to be a better listener.
But before I share a link to it, I’d love to introduce you to Cynthia Reyes, a Canadian author/blogger friend, who writes poignant and captivating memoir.
I read her first one last year (A Good Home) and now I’m enjoying her second book (An Honest House) that came out this week.
Here’s the link to her blog:
And by the way, she’s a wonderful blog neighbour to have. We share a love of character homes, gardens, poetry, and memoir. And occasionally we’ve both been caught using “eh?” as part of our vocabulary. Her from-the-heart writing always hooks me–I can see why she’s won journalism awards.
And here’s the link for my post about being a better listener: Nine Good Habits to Make You a Great Listener

Thank you, Wendy! I’m honoured to have you as a friend, always inspired by your faith, big heart and your writing, and I look forward to your own book before long.
Thank you, Cynthia. I finished reading part one last night–awesome. I wanted to keep going, but I forced myself to turn out my bedside light. 🙂 Your honest writing is so refreshing and much needed so others will know they’re not alone. My admiration for you continues to grow the more I get to know you, dear friend. <3
I had the same problem, Wendy. Had to force myself to put down the book.
🙂 It happened to me again last night too.
Me too but I keep saying, go slow, go slow, or this story will be over too quickly!
🙂 Let’s console ourselves with the knowledge we can read it again.
that’s a nice story to find a good friend in this community. I must admit I have found some, too.
Reading blogs is a bit like reading letters–it’s a great way to discover kindred spirits. 🙂 Blessings on our weekend.
completely right. Sometimes I’m lookind for kindred spirits, too.
I needed to read your list of how to be a good listener. I felt sheepish at several of them. Thank you for these great reminders. Listening is so important for others to feel validated.
Susan, I cringe each time I read them. Cringing means we care. And that’s a good thing. 🙂
Beautiful pic and the words so meaningful! 🙂
Thank you. 🙂
