Mrs. Sue’s copy

Yesterday I introduced you to “Mrs. Sue”.  There is more to her story that you should know.  At her advanced age Mrs. Sue has great difficulty in hearing speech.  She certainly has no idea what is said in the sermon.

Our priest (Episcopal), Fr. Chad, has begun a tradition of always leaving a typed, large-print copy of his sermon with the ushers.  You can tell Fr. Chad has young children at home – on the outside of the folded pages is written “Mrs. Sue” in crayon.

It makes me smile every Sunday.

    Hearing aids. High-frequency losses wipe out the consonants in old age. It takes about three months to get used to regularly hearing the world way louder than one’s brain is used to hearing it at, but it is so absolutely worth it. I remember when I got my first set at 27, feeling like I had regained my place in humanity, conversation-wise. And if she’s afraid of feeling like she looks old, tell her I was 27. Besides, nowadays people’ll just think it’s a Bluetooth, right?
