Then I realized that was thankful for those squeaks.
Well not necessarily the squeaks themselves but I was thankful for the ability that I have to hear those movements. That I have the ability to hear at all. You may have seen this video if you haven't take a minute to watch.
There is a song that I grew up singing with a line in it that says...
"He gave me my ears that I might hear. The magical sound of things."
There are sounds that are truly magical.
Water flowing in a stream
The song of the first robin of Spring
Laughter of a child
A newborn's first cry
The words "I love you" whispered into your ear
So many wondrous and beautiful sounds.
So today I am thankful for my hearing. I hope that it sticks around for a long time.
