Special Place in My Heart

 Photo of grandson Marcus and I. All my grandkids are special to me, but Marcus holds a special place as I watched him as a baby several days each week while his Momma was away working. We didn't know for several years that he has a huge hearing loss because it just wasn't showing up on Drs. testing. But, we always talked towards him loudly as he always preferred to have the TV and Radio up quite loud. Finally, after finding a good Specialist they found he had quite severe hearing loss. He's tried a couple different hearing aids and he just can't get used to them, so he mostly reads lips. I'm just so in awe of everything he's had to endure in his short life. (I ran out of journal space, but added another card to the back of the layout.)
