Thank you Greg and Anna for sharing your thoughts and wisdom , in what we can think about as essential for longevity of clear communication and understanding within relationships . The way you come across as so conscientious of each other’s perspectives and wanting to understand each other in a way that elevates each other to the best they can be is so inspiring , and empowering. For myself to have hope that this kind of relationship is totally possible and not just a dream has been essential . Thank you again Anna
