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.
