    I LOVE the quotes that open the article, and I have to tell you I find myself in a position of hearing people’s life stories ALL THE TIME – flight attendants, one of our contractors, a bartender hired for my husband’s daughter’s birthday party. It makes me realize how many people probably don’t feel listened to, and while sometimes I feel impatient or cranky or not in the mood to listen, I always try to be present and to hear whatever they have to say. I agree with you, all those little moments mean a great deal.

    Christine — I know exactly what you mean. It’s not always easy to do the listening, because once people who are not used to being heard realize what’s happening, they can find it hard to stop. But like you say, it can be a huge gift to just take the time for them.
