I have had my eyes looked at, and bright lights shined into them and today had them poked with a sharp stick with a red light.
" What are you doing in here for cataracts, you are too young." Right off the bat I liked him.
I put my eye up to the screen then he leaned around the machine, and looked at me with a shocked look on his face. He said, " Oh, My Gosh! Did you drive here yourself? How in the world do you do anything, you are blind, you are too young to have cataracts this bad." After asking me tons of questions what he finally thought it was was radiation from being out in the garden without sunglasses or a hat and the glare out there has hurt my eyes really bad.
Having doctors who have machines that can give exact readings.
Being able to function in spite of being blind.
Having people who pray for me and give me verses just when I need them and I can feel the prayers.
Being happy that very, very soon I will be able to see again. I know this will sound odd, but I am so very, very thankful I am not crazy. You see, for so long I have thought I was crazy. I thought I whined too much and complained to myself when I couldn't do simple things anymore.
I am so thankful it isn't my imagination.
The biggest thing of all is, feeling so dumb because I would make so many mistakes doing counted cross stitch. Do you know how dumb I felt because I would spend more time ripping out? I did find today, I took a embroidery thing to work on in the doctors office. I can embroider so that helps with the needle withdrawal.
Apparently I shouldn't be able to do that either. That is what makes me tickled, even with the machines saying one thing, God has been so gracious to me not to take away these things I love. I think it is just one of those little things that maybe wouldn't mean much to most people but to me, I feel really special. I am very thankful for it all.
Thank you for listening to me and reading these silly posts. I really feel I have been given a gift. It makes me stop and count my blessings one by one. . My eyes will be going from a old black and white T.V. set with rabbit ears to pick up stations to a flat screen 52 inch HDTV. That was how they explained it to me.
Have a lovely Wednesday,
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
