"Listen for the Heart Message"

I am committed to making this a high priority for Honey Bear -
"Listen for the Heart Message"

Spend one evening listening to your husband. Even if neither of you talks much,make a point of really hearing everything he says. Smile and invite him to say more by tilting your head and saying, "Really?" or "Oh?", then LISTEN. Acknowledge that you hear what your husband says (whether you agree with it or not) by saying, "I hear you."

A heart message is a statement that sounds like one thing on the surface, but means something else when you probe a little deeper. Your husband may not be explicit about his emotions, but you'll hear his vulnerability and truth in heart messages if you listen carefully. What you really want to know is the message that's hidden underneath your husband's words.
