all types of communications, whether it is with a computer, texting, a letter, a card in the mail, or my favorite, a phone. There is nothing like hearing that familiar voice on the other end of the phone.
A few weeks ago when I was not feeling well, Son# 2 called everyday sometimes two and three times a day. One day I reassured him I was doing well and not to worry, with his voice cracking, his reply was "I was worried about you, Mother". He, being so far away was able to use his phone to call and have his mind put at ease. I guess by hearing my voice he knew all was right... BTW, he still calls everyday.~big smile~
What is so special about a Mother's voice?....
Have you ever noticed a newborn baby, when the mother speaks how the baby's eyes and head turn toward that soft, loving voice ....When our children begin to grow, they learn the many tones of our voices, when they fall down and get hurt, we go to them, pick them up and through our comfort voice, tell them that everything will be all right. When they misbehave, we use our stern voice, to reprimand them, but it is done in a loving way. When they are sick, we reach down, and touch their fevered brow, and whisper in their ear with our reassuring voice that we are there and they will be well soon.
So when our child calls and says "I just wanted to hear your voice"...... They are just needing to hear one or more of our voices,
For today I am thankful for the many types and ways we have of communication!
