Can You Hear My Happiness?

My nephew loves to snuggle up next to you on the couch when watching TV or a movie. He will take your arms and wrap them around him like a human blanket as he burrows into any nook in your body he can find; it’s like he wants to become part of you to enhance his comfort.

This week, he was all cuddled up next to my mother on the couch when he turned to her and said, "Nana, I hear your heart and it sounds happy."

She responded with, "My heart is always happy when I am around you."

And he said, "I know. I can hear it through your chest."


Now if that isn't the best sound in the world, I just don't know what is.

I love it. Perfect. I sometimes wonder if my deafblind boy, can hear my heart. Hear my happiness.

I really so hope he can.

Lisa,

He can most likely FEEL it. Happiness, love and what is inside your heart transcends what one might be able to hear or see. When it is present, it is always felt and always known.

Thank you for commenting.
