Is there a sweeter sound than a child's laughter? My main aim when our grandchildren visit is to make them laugh. I have yet to meet anyone who does not smile when they hear a child laugh - it's infectious, it lifts your heart and your spirit.
There are other sounds which bring joy to my heart - the dawn chorus, a blackbird's song, our two collared doves cooing, the sound of trees swaying in the breeze, a babbling brook, music and best of all MWM's voice when he tells me he loves me. I'm thankful I can hear.

My knee seems to be getting stronger, the exercises are becoming a little easier. It's still very painful and I have some spectacular bruising aroung my ankle - don't ask, I don't know why my ankle is bruised. I have been home a week today as MWM reminded me - he also said he sees a definite improvement in my knee so I'll take his word for it.
