60 Tiny Love Stories to Make You Smile

60 Tiny Love Stories to Make You Smile | Resilient Relationships | Scoop.it

Here’s a selection of 60 tiny love stories recently submitted to our sister site, Makes Me Think, that not only made us think, but warmed our hearts and made us smile too.  We hope they do the same for you.

Today, my 75-year-old grandpa who has been blind from cataracts for almost 15 years said to me, “Your grandma is just the most beautiful thing, isn’t she?” I paused for a second and said, “Yes she is. I bet you miss seeing that beauty on a daily basis.” “Sweety,” my grandpa said, “I still see her beauty every day. In fact, I see it more now than I used to when we were young.” MMT http://www.marcandangel.com/2011/11/20/60-tiny-love-stories-to-make-you-smile/

Great resource for improving communication skills in your relationship. Bruce uses the metaphor of a tennis game to show how to be a better listener and communicator. Great tool!

Dr. Amy Fuller's curator insight, July 10, 2013 12:34 PM

Check out this great video with an excellent metaphor for healthy communication...tennis! Just like only one person can serve at a time in the game of tennis, healthy communication works best when one person is the speaker and one person is the listener.
