The Gift of Eyesight

Thanksgiving has come early for me.  I had cataract surgery last week, and can see better with my right eye than I can ever remember.  My eyesight had deteriorated rapidly this last year.  A terrifying process.  A very humbling experience.  I will have my left eye done in a couple of weeks.  In the meantime, I’m finding projects that don’t require much lifting, bending over, or the need for depth perception.  Today I cranked out our Thanksgiving dinner favors.

I feel immense gratitude for this gift of new eyesight.

    So happy that all went well! How exciting to have renewed vision. I’ll bet it will be inspiring for you in so many ways.

    I am moved to tears several times each day when I realize how well I can see now out of my new eye. Everything is so much lighter and brighter – including the dark bags under my eyes! I was shocked to see them as soon as I took off the eye patch following surgery. Vanity aside, I am thrilled to see a clear and crisp world.
