Hello, just a quick post to explain my lack of posts, we recently moved into our new home! It is a three floor townhouse with two bedrooms and a huge basement. My family really like our new home. It is taking a while to get things set up! Which is typical of moving, right?!
Anyways, the other night my older son said something to me that made me stop for a second… He said “I wish Daddy could hear…” My wife interpreted this. It took me a second to grasp what he said: “I wish…”, I replied in ASL, my wife did help a bit, “I don’t wish I could hear, I am used to being deaf, I sign and so will you.”
Now, truth, I am happy that I cannot hear a lot of useless arguing, name calling and insults. I think the most beautiful sound is the chirping I hear when my children are in the room, and when they are close to me. That is all the I can distinguish, its like an untuned radio, if you know what that is raise your hand. What they are saying, is beyond my ability, I can’t discern anything.
I am so used to being Deaf-Blind with severe ataxia, that if someone offered a magic pill to cure me and make me “normal”, I would take it and crush it. I would not change anything about me.
Besides, what exactly is “normal” or “typical”? What I do is my normal, what you do is your typical thing. Everyone’s normal in their own spotlight.
What I would wish for is great physique with an incredible set of abs! Oh that I could wish for! Oh, I better get to the gym!
