Anybody Listening?

Communication is the lifeblood of a relationship, but sometimes do you feel like, “My spouse doesn’t even hear me? I just said something,” and you’re waiting for that response.
Our three year old, Jackson, when he gets that feeling, he has a very interesting response. Just out of the blue he’ll say, “Anybody?”
Ya, “Anybody out there?” That’s a pretty good way, it’s a pretty good technique that we’ve used now in our own marriage.
It’s so effective. We’ve started that code. Whenever I say something and you don’t respond, I’ll just say to you, “Anybody?” and you get it.
Friend, you can do the same thing. Check in with your spouse to make sure you’re fully present.
