No voice

It's 5 o'clock on a Saturday sang Billy Joel. Well it's actually 5 o'clock on a Thursday but that doesn't have the same ring to it.
I'm awake because I have laryngitis and can't stop coughing so I thought I'd do something useful like create this blog.
Welcome to my world!
At the moment I'm banned from speaking. It's day 5 and my voice hasn't improved. It's frustrating to have to write everything down. I choose my words more carefully though as they take so long.
Last night I went to Hastings, and was reminded of the poem that gave me my blog title.
"Earth is crammed with heaven
And every common bush afire with God.
But only he who sees takes off their shoes..."
As I spend more time in enforced silence I hope to see....
Shame my husband and boys haven't got it too!

it's funny, as in peculiar not haha, how when we lose something (i.e. voice) we bcome more sensitive and aware of our surroundings but more importantly God.

I know it's frustrating and annoying (I lost mine for 4 weeks earlier in the year) but find comfort and peace in the silence and prepare yourself for those 1st precious words :))
