The Gift of Hearing

Most people would love to not be able to hear their Mother in Law talk, however I have one of the coolest people in the word for a Mother in Law so for me it was a horrible thing. Little by little my hearing was deteriorating and I could not ignore it anymore. Not being able to hear the wise advice from my Mother in Law was just what made it real, made it hit me on the face. We came back from our trip to Colombia and I went to see the audiologist who then sent me to the best surgeon in the area for this procedure. Long story short, I can now hear! a lot better than I probably have in years.

My doctor probably has made many people hear so my excitement was not new to him. He is truly giving people a gift back and I am grateful. Besides being able to hear music and just the obvious this week I truly felt blessed. Driving to a friend’s house for dinner, the wife and I were listening to music. My wife has a beautiful singing voice, and everyone should hear her sing in Spanish some time. We were both singing a song that is more about pain and heartbreak than a single song should be allowed. Hearing her voice articulate the words really made me feel special to have her by my side. Even right now as I am typing this she is behind me following another song with that melodic voice and working on her crafts. So thanks to the wonderful doctor for restoring the gift of being able to hear once again!

    What did you do wrong that needs all this sweet-talk to cover it up?

  3. SHHHHHH! darn burro!

    I left all my dirty clothes in the bathroom!

  4. LOL!

    He didn’t do anything wrong.

    Thank you for all the nice compliments. Unfortunately, I only sing in private… for you. :-)

  5. Wow, I can’t imagine not being able to listen to music. Reminds me of a girl in my elementary school who got glasses and was amazed to discover that trees had leaves. She always assumed that they were really shaped just like children draw them on paper.
