Yesterday, I went on a listing appointment in one of my favorite towns, Conway MO. The property has 20 acres, with a home and various out buildings, including a very nice barn. (More to come next week as we finish up the paperwork and the visual tour.)
When I arrived, a few minutes late, I waved and said hello to the hired hand. The lady looked at me and waved back, but did not say anything. As the owner, Sharon, and I talked, I found out the helper was deaf - and had been since the age of two.
Sharon mentioned she would miss the sound of rustling leaves and whistling wind. Immediately I said I would miss the sound of a cat purring.
Leaving the property some time later, I decided:
I would also miss the laughter of my children and probably even their occasional whining.
I would miss the cheering of the crowd at our high school basketball games.
I would miss the sound of the snow plow hitting the pavement during the night.
I would miss the sound of the frogs on the pond and the bellow of the cows.
If suddenly your hearing was taken away from you, what sounds would you miss? What would you long to hear again?
