Nan's Farm-Inside Out

A deaf husband and a blind wife are always a happy couple.” ~ John Florio

This week while walking at the top of the lane, a grey-haired elderly looking lady waved to me from one of the gardens. I took a second look and was shocked to discover that the grey haired lady with her hair tied into a bun was not at all old, this was a young woman, aged just forty-two and who as a child used to play at my house with my children.

How sad that her hair had turned grey at such a young age, and I found it hard to understand why she hadn’t attempted to colour and conceal it to preserve her youth a little while longer.

  1. Thank you very much for the re-blog. Knowing there is almost a stigma attached to wearing hearing aids I almost didn’t write the article, but I’m glad I did.

And you know how sensitive I am about getting older! I still don’t believe I’m deaf because everything sounds the same with or without the hearing aids, the only difference is I hear those initial sounds clearly now. 🙂


        • I can truly appreciate your line of thinking. We all tend to place labels upon ourselves whether they are justified or not. The solution: Ignore label making and branding yourself. Be proactive on your own behalf. Enjoy every day that you are given. That is the real gift. xx

          • Thank you. I admire people who accept their age graciously and simply get on with it. I cannot understand it but I admire that they don’t seem to mind.
