The Gift of Eyesight

November 14, 2011

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.
