    I love to hear the sound of children laughing and playing, birds singing, waves breaking on the beach and beautiful classical music. What sounds do other members like to hear ?

    I think we are too much alike...LOL. Mine are:
    My children's voices, babies cooing, children laughing, sewing machines humming, the ocean waves, birds singing and the silence when I'm under water diving....it's like you can hear the sand moving......

    My grandchildren's voices, my hubby's laugh, my cat's purr, waves at the ocean, the wind in the leaves

    My grandson's laugh and jabbering (seven months old and I am sure he has something profound to say!), my dogs when I come home - they get so excited!, music playing in the background while my Baby sews along!

    I love all the ones mentioned but my favorite sound is when my children (the teenagers) are talking and laughing instead of fighting and yelling at each other. The sound of the front door when DH comes home from work. The silence when the older ones are off to school and DH & Eli are still asleep is it the only time my home is quiet.

    Silence!LOL. I love the sound of my kids not fighting,the sound of a baby nursing( oh how I miss that one) the sound popcorn makes when its poppping in a metal pan, a tea kettle whistling The sound of my DH's trucks coming in the evening, the rumble of thunder,drizzling rain, the sounds of a beautiful spring morning before anyone else is up.A hawk and an owls call, cow calling her baby or goat too. and the humm of my sewing machine when she's in her stride. I could be here all day listing my blessings but I have to go make some noise( dishwasher and washer). :lol:

    The sound of the first Purple Martin returning in spring. Means I'll be blessed with another year of those wonderful birds in my martin house. My parrots talking, jabbering & laughing. The sound of my DH returning from work. My dogs, who get excited if I'm out of their sight for a few minutes. All the sounds of spring, the bugs, birds. The wind howling thru the trees on a warm night. My furnace kicking on, means it's working & we won't be cold. Rain on the roof. There's so many, but the most important one is....I can hear :).

    I so love everyone's responses and definitely kids laughing is a good one. I love the silly "woo-woo" howl my dog does when she is greeting me home. She doesn't bark hardly at all it is always this kind of wolf howl noise. I absolutely love the still quiet of the outside during a heavy snowfall. Everything is so muffled and peaceful and clean but you can hear a twig snap from a deer in the woods from a long ways off or the soft "whumff" noise when a buildup of snow falls from a bare tree branch. I always lift up thanks when I am outside at home during a snow. I am thankful for the serenity and beauty of the moment and very thankful I have a warm safe place to be.

    Birds singing is a good one as well as a raptors cry. A cat purr or the purr-meow combo they often make when they have something good to tell you. Loons on a lake at dawn. A crackling campfire. Thunder in the distance.

    It's lovely to read of all the sounds that make people happy, all of those I love too, except I don't have parrots, or teenagers and of course my two little dogs make a fuss when we return from being out. Thank God for our hearing.

    I also love hearing children playing and laughing. I like the sound of the wind blowing through pine trees or palm trees (depending where I am). I have a 4 year old neighbor girl that has a laugh/giggle that is so sweet (I get to hear that one often).

    But most of all, I love hearing my car start when I turn the key the first time. ;-)

    A baby's deep belly laugh, wind in the pine trees, frogs, hoot owls, just the nature sounds when sitting in the yard.

    Born and raised in the hills..the sound of wind in the trees soothes me and takes me way back in time.
    The sound of water rippling over rocks when watching a bobbing plastic ball in the water while fishing.
    The sound of giggling small kids in bed after being told to be quiet and go to sleep.
    Laughing baby when he sees leaves falling around him.
    Brother laughing while telling me a joke that I sent him weeks ago in an email!
    The purring of my cat when he is nestled near my shoulder when I'm almost asleep.
    Squeals of joy when out of state daughters walk in the door~

    The nickers and whinnies of my wonderful horses, my dogs greeting me when I get home, and the purring of my cats :-)

    All of these are really wonderful sounds. My all time favorite is a baby's giggle when they first laugh out loud. To me, there is no more precious sound than that.

    I agree with you on this one, nothing like hearing babies giggle, they always bring the biggest smile and make my heart sing. :D

    I love the sounds small kids make in church - those are sounds of a church that is growing, not stagnate or dying. It doesn't bother me one little bit if they fuss, or anything else. How else are they going to learn how to act in church?

    One Sunday our pastor said, "Let us pray." and a small voice from behind me said, "OK."

    How precious!

    I love the sound of the dishwasher becasue it reminds me of when I was little and dinner was over and everything cleaned up and Mom was home. It's been over 35 years since I've lived at home and that sound still makes me feel nostalgic!

    The cooing of babies. My grandson at 5yrs of age. The family lived in an old house with a bathtub but no shower. One weekend at our home I told him to take a shower and he looked at me like, Oh Oh. But I talked him into it and I left the bathroom door open to make sure he would be okay. Well, to my wonderful surprise as I walked by I heard him singing at the top of his voice; the sound of that will live within me always. Can you tell he is my hearts treasure.

    There is nothing sweeter than childrens voices. I miss my grandchildren very much and was ecstatic when five moved next door just so I could listen to them. My kids and older grandkids used to laugh at me because I would just watch the kids and now some of them finally get it.

    I love to hear the wind rattle the window panes. In my house I can't hear it but in older homes it is a reminder of being snug and warm at home or my granny's. I'm 66 but it still makes me feel comfortable. Growing up we didn't have central air and when it was really cold there would be tons of quilts on the bed and it was hard to turn over. I have my bedroom cold with a window unit, even in winter, because it makes me feel safe and warm.
