Today, I’m thankful for my eyes. I know it may sound strange, but I really am.
You know how they say that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone? Well, it’s one hundred percent true. We all take things for granted, that’s for sure. We don’t realize how important they are until we almost lose them.
And that’s what happened to me a couple of years ago. Something mysterious happened to my eyes, and I had a problem with my eye sight. I didn’t lose it, but I could barely see or focus. It slowly went back to normal on it’s own, but we never figured out what caused the problem.
Needless to say, it was an absolutely frightening experience. I remember waking up every morning, praying that I could see normally again. And once I did, I was thankful for it every single day.
Life has interesting ways of teaching you lessons. And one way or another they will keep coming, until you learn them.
