Communicating around here can be difficult with the hearing loss both my mom and dad experience. Also, with my mom’s Parkinson’s disease, her voice has become very quiet and she has to work hard to speak in her “loud voice”. Many times during the day there are repeated phrases, misunderstandings, and dare I say yelling. We do all try to be patient, but we are only human after all. Case in point: It was a stormy, rainy evening tonight with lightning, thunder, and even a little hail. After dinner, I offered my mother some dessert. The words were, “Would you like some pie?” She was surprised and responded, “You’re going to sit outside?!” We all had a good laugh and remembered how important it is to keep a sense of humor.
I Found God today remembering to keep laughing.
