Do you hear or just listen?

Although I think this quote is witty and amusing, and know several women to whom this applies, I'm actually one of those people who wants to know what others think. Having said that, that doesn't take away my desire to be HEARD. I've been trying to get my husband to understand that -- that I'm not asking him to fix something, I just want him to listen. KWIM?

Hope you have a great day,

Awesome hon! I agree with's always nice to know what other people think as all of us have the ability to think for ourselves and when we know what others think, we understand them so much better..:-)

LOLOL! When I see all the comments about the hubby's I am so glad that I am not the only one that also want him to just "listen" and not always have to "fix" something. Nikki...agree with you don't do "discuss"...and hubby says it's because they think "logical"...we like to keep our options open and ponder about things..try to see things in a different way, or try it in a different way...stuff like that.

Mel, your lovely quote sure opened a whole debate..LOL! Thanks hon! Love your wordart so much!

I made a stationery with your awesome "Being Married" wordart, but I think it landed up in the spam section again..LOL!

Have a great day!
