Good Neighbours Share More than Just a Cup of Sugar


embracing silence

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:

An Honest House/Cynthia Reyes

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

  1. 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.

    1. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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

  2. 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.
