I propose an idea:
whenever you're ready to talk to me (I hope it's soon, but I won't pressure it to be any sooner than you are ready) I promise to open my ears and hear everything you have to say. I promise to open my heart and put forth every bit of effort to understand exactly what you're saying. I promise not to interupt. I promise to hear you out, everything you've ever wanted to say to me but were too afraid I wouldn't truly LISTEN. I want to hear all of what you want to say to me.
"My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry."
"Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification."
Someone wise once said that God gave us two ears and one mouth to listen twice as much as we speak. Now I've said too much already... but I'm prepared to start using the organs that are better put to use.
Ready when you are.
