Voiceless in Myrtle Beach

Today is day two of Laryngitis.  If you have ever had a case then you know how frustrating it is not to be able to communicate using ones voice.

It also makes you very aware of how much we rely on our voices to communicate.  Just out of habit when the phone rings I pick it up, but the other end doesn't hear a word and think they have reached a wrong number!! So today I will not be answering my phone. Text or email is the only way to go today.  Makes you wonder what people did years ago?

I also am thinking about the thousands of people who have never had a voice or lost their voices completely.  We do take the power of voice for granted.  The power of the words that flow from your voice can help or hurt - your choice.

Make your Voice Count!!!!
