The Sounds of Nature

Last night, I went to sleep to the sounds of mooing. This time of year and again in the fall, the ranch behind our house moves their cows into the field right behind us. I love it! Hearing all the mooing during the day when the windows are open and drifting off to sleep to those little bellows at night is very soothing. This morning I awoke to the sounds of birds chirping before the sun was even up. I love hearing nature around me; I'm THANKFUL for my hearing.

I can't even imagine what it is like to not be able to hear the sounds of precious family members let alone the sounds of nature. We take our hearing for granted every day; it’s something we need to treasure, because it truly is a miracle.

Seeing, hearing, feeling, are miracles, and each part and tag of me is a miracle. ~ Walt Whitman

I hope I inspire people who hear. Hearing people have the ability to remove barriers that prevent deaf people from achieving their dreams. ~ Marlee Matlin

Sounds of Nature

I can hear the rippling water falling gently
From the waterfall that I have found
From the meadow I hear meadowlarks a singing
Seems there’s sounds of nature all around

I can hear the wind go whistling through the treetops
I hear raindrops falling softly to the ground
In the distance I can hear the roar of thunder
Seems there’s sounds of nature all around

Sounds of nature fill the air with music
How I love and cherish every sound
I often kneel in prayer to thank the Master
For the sounds of nature all around

In a barren tree a lonesome dove is calling
For its mate that’s nowhere to be found
In the garden I hear honeybees a humming

~Dolly Parton
