listen.

bruno mars. mcrae saying "loves you". footsteps. thunderstorms. birds chirping. bubble guppies theme song. the doorbell. cannon cooing. best friends voice. jace playing the guitar. kitchen timer. splash in the pool. baseball hitting the bat. lady antebellum. babys heartbeat. beeping when you forget your seatbelt. football commentators. the singing of happy birthday.
Ty turned 17 and he didn't even hear us sing. I love this kid so much and am so grateful for his attitude toward life. He is such an example to me. On his birthday, I told him that if Heavenly Father would let him trade ears with someone, that I would do it! I would give anything for this boy to hear. He told me that he would only trade me one ear, beacause he wouldn't want me to be completely deaf. Ty has such a big heart and I cannot wait for the day that we are made perfect and his ears will hear.

Aw this made me tear up! You are such a kind, wonderful woman, sister, and friend! I am so happy to know you.
How wonderful the day will be when he will hear you say you love him. Until then, thank heavens for ASL. :)

This brought tears to my eyes. I only remember him when he was very little when Rachel would go babysit him and tell me stories. He is lucky to have a loving sister like you.
