Socks are the Voice of the Heart
Confucius once said:
“Words are the voice of the heart.”
Words are important to me. I have seen how words impact people and lives. The significance words impart can be far-reaching. Words inform, persuade, hurt or soothe pain; they can greet or bid farewell. They may get your point across, or destroy any hope of your ideas ever being understood. And hey! Words make great blogs!
I have been taking a “wee break” while I recharge my battery in the EECP room. Words come at an expense right now. I have had to change Confucius quote to a “Sharon quote”
“Socks are the voice of the heart.” May these socks “speak my words.”
Allow me to explain. I shared my insights into Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) on a previous post, saying: “Wear fun and colorful socks because that is what you see when you are lying on the exam table! It adds some novelty to your treatment – for both you and the nurse.” That post also stated that I was beginning EECP in early October.
AND then … I received several pair of fun socks! Socks really are the voice of the heart. I hear and feel the love and compassion from friends and family in a concrete way… and I feel it throughout the entire session of EECP.
SOCKS are the perfect accessory for EECP!
I can think of nothing better during this time.
From the bottom of my socks, THANK YOU!
