Today I'm joining Nan, for Making Your Home Sing Monday.
One of the most important things that I think we can do to make our home sing is to close our mouths and open our ears.
My husband is in Law Enforcement, and he needs to be able to unwind from his workday. His job doesn't end when he leaves the office, he's in-tune to the radio until the moment he leaves his car in the driveway, so there is no "unwinding" time in his drive home. The most important thing I can do for him at that point is to listen.
We have an empty nest now, but even when our son was home, he understood that Dad needed that time after he got home. He'd give him a hug and say hello, then he'd go do his own thing for a bit and give Dad some space.
When he comes home now, I greet him at the car, help him with his 'stuff', and then we spend some time just laying on the bed talking about his day. I always make a point of asking him about his day before I begin rambling about mine. I know his mind needs to cool down, check things off and rest.
I think this is a good way to make my home sing everyday...what do you do? Pop over to Nan's and link up!
