The silence found around us can be welcomed in such a busy life. The many things that occupy our time, at work and in this noise world, makes silence a distant thing.
When we have a hearing loss, often that is slowly progressing, the noises around us and most importantly the speech in our life becomes difficult at best to hear and understand. It’s in these moments that we can disconnect with and to others in the gentleness of soft speech, the voices of children, the sermon at church, as well as the soft spoken punchline of a joke. When others laugh at a joke, and we fail to hear it, do we not become discouraged or feel separated to the laughter and the moment?
Let’s place emphasis on helping those with hearing loss to regain the excitement of sound. As we hear and understand what is around us we can best engage and become a part of everyday life. These moments are important and ones in which should bring “excitement to our senses”. It’s certainly easy to take the world around us for granted… let’s inspire and share with others.
