There are beautiful souls. There are probably more beautiful souls living amongst us than we can even imagine, but we don’t hear about these daily, hourly good deeds very often. Of course our hearts ache when something traumatic happens but lets try to also remember the countless acts of kindness around us. Love and positivity surround us and when we contribute to this, it multiplies because it is contagious. It is like jam…when you spread it, you can’t help but get a little on yourself. So, in the midst of tragedy, try to remember that life is good and beautiful and that you have the power to affect your immediate surroundings. Prayers go out to the victims and all those affected.
Peace & Blue Skies, Donna Bennett

It can be especially hard for them to hear when more than one person is talking or there is a lot of background noise. Here are some tips you can use when talking with someone who has a hearing problem:
· In a group, include people with hearing loss in the conversation.
· Find a quiet place to talk to help reduce background noise, especially in restaurants and at social gatherings.
· Stand in good lighting and use facial expressions or gestures to give clues.
· Face the person and speak clearly.
· Speak a little more loudly than normal, but don’t shout.
· Speak at a reasonable speed.
· Do not hide your mouth, eat, or chew gum while speaking.
· Repeat yourself if necessary, using different words.
· Try to make sure only one person talks at a time.
· Be patient. Stay positive and relaxed.
· Ask how you can help.
