Week 6: Being able to see

This week I am grateful to see. Yesterday I received some terrible news about my brother who had a freak incident where he nearly lost his sight in one eye. Its been a very scarey time for him and his family, and we hope that he recovers soon, and gains the majority of his sight back.

Its moments like these when I think of how lucky I am to be able to see. I guess you don't realise how precious the gift of sight is until something like this happens.

I don't know what I would do if one day I woke up and couldn't see my husband or children. As a mother, it would have to be the hardest thing; not being able to see your children smile, see your children jumping in muddy puddles, or watching them play at the park like I saw today.

Not seeing my gorgeous girls and husband would be heartbreaking. I feel so lucky to have seen the birth of my girls, and watch them grow up.

I am grateful to see their beautiful smiles.

I am grateful that my husband & I have been able to travel overseas, and to places within Australia where we have seen some beautiful scenary, and cities which we have grown to love.

I am grateful to see my favourite artist's art within museums & galleries.

I am grateful to see my family and friends, be able to look at and take photographs, to see a movie, to see animals and things in nature like a sunset, etc.

There are so many things I could list...but really, I am just grateful that I can see.

  1. Julie, I'm so sorry to hear about your brother having an accident. Thank goodness he didn't lose his sight. You have really made me aware of all the beauty I can see right now! x
