This will be a short post written with a very grateful heart. I have been blind in my left eye since 2004… I was only able to see shadows. This condition put a great strain on my right eye so much that I seldom read a book or anything printed on paper. Today I had surgery on my left eye and to my delight was reading signs in the recovery room before the doctor put a shield on it to protect it while it heals. I can see!!!
Recently a blogger I read discussed liberal arts educations vs. speciality educations. I am grateful for both. I felt a deep sense of gratitude for the doctors and nurses that attended me today. Without their countless years of dedication and study, I could not have experienced the miracle of sight today or back in 2003 when my other eye was operated on. I know that their skill is the result of their sacrifice of time, money and the pursuit of pleasure. I know that their families shared in their sacrifice. I just want to say thank you to everyone who helped in restoring my sight today. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
And thank you to everyone who sacrifices time, mind, money and life to make this world a better place for all mankind.
