Sound of Love
Life whispers in our soul and speaks to our heart. Sometimes, we don't have time to listen. Do we sometimes ignore lovely things because our lives are too fast and busy leaving them to wonder whether we really love them? I thought I was a patient man, but I was not until I met a nine year old boy. He let me know that people should pay attention to the small things, even a smile or a sound.
