The Sound of Your Voice

Sometimes when I talk to my mom and she first hears my voice, she'll immediately ask, "What's wrong?" I can say "Nothing" 100 times, and she'll eventually say, "I don't hear that lilt in your voice." Now I have never known exactly what the "LILT" is, but she says she can hear it. Um?

As much as I hate to admit it, I can hear a difference in my daughter's voice sometimes...and I immediately worry. My boys' voice doesn't seem to change like that, but Lindsey's does - sometimes.

What has made me think of this is hearing Camilla's voice. I can tell the INSTANT I hear her voice how her day is going...I can usually hear it in Rema's voice too. I'm not exactly sure if it's a "LILT", but it's a difference, for sure. Well, yesterday I called Camilla and Rema...Camilla answered the phone with a DEFINITE LILT in her voice...whatever that may be! She sounds GREAT! She's feeling so much better, and she's finally sleeping at night. The coughing from the pneumonia is drastically improved...Rema thinks she might have already made T-Cells....even though Dr. Horowitz says it's too early. He said that before and she surprised them all with making them early.

This photo was taken about a week ago. Their friend, Karen, was out visiting and took this shot of Camilla playing pool in Target House. Camilla doesn't like the photos, she thinks she doesn't look good. I think she looks WONDERFUL!

It thrills my heart to hear that Camilla is up and about (playing pool!!!), feeling better and sounding great.

I just wanted to stop by and say thanks for visiting my blog this week while I've been away!
I'm feeling better by the minute!
On the lilt it is funny how your voice can carry your feelings isn't it...I've found it true in blogs too...the tone sometimes sounds like someone needs a hug or a prayer, so even if they don't ask, I try to do that for them anyway.
