I went to my class at church tonight and as I walked in the teacher said, "Hi Kathy." So, I sat down across from a lady I had not seen in a few years and I waved to her, then I started talking to someone else. But I could hear the lady across from me asking someone which Kathy it was sitting across from her. I was confused -- did she not remember me? Then she told me that she had lost most of her sight a few years ago and she is now considered legally blind. I was glad she told me because I didn't even know, and I wasn't able to tell just by looking at her. I did notice then that she had on very thick glasses. It just made me start thinking about how precious my eyesight is. I can't even imagine losing my eyesight at this time of life. It would change everything. I feel so bad for this lady for having to change her entire life. But she seemed to have such a good outlook and attitude.
Sometimes we forget to be thankful for some of the greatest gifts, such as our five senses. We never know what tomorrow will bring.
The Lord said to him, "Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Exodus 4:11
