Buddy loves his music. He has a DVD player and TV in his room, and he plays DVDs and CDs, from the time he wakes up, until bedtime.
He can find the song he wants, and will play it all day. He knows, what CD/DVD has the song he is looking for, and how many times he has to push the buttons to get to it.
This morning I was getting ready to pay bills, and Buddy comes out of his room and grabs my arm. He pulls me back to his room as fast as he can, and I think the usual…he pushed the wrong button and turned the TV off. And he is asking me to fix it for him.
We get to his room and he pushes some buttons…Tanya Tucker starts singing about a road map of Texas.
I start making jokes, and asking for kisses. Then I asked for a hug. and he leans over and pushes a few more buttons…he stops and Ms Tucker starts introducing a song. As she does, Buddy grabs my hands and pulls me to him.
He wraps my arms around him and pulls me into a bear hug, so I start to slow dance with him as the music begins.
Buddy, understands everything, so I can only believe that he was trying to tell me something in a way that only a non-verbal person can.
As he held me tight, with his head on my shoulder and mine on his… Tanya Tucker sang “You Are So Beautiful To Me”.
When I looked up and said “Is that what you want to tell me?” He smiled the biggest smile, and I cried.
I can’t tell you how awesome it is to FEEL loved, when you can’t hear it!
