*DISCLAIMER* I am still quite ill and haven’t gain full vision yet, so please excuse the typos in the posts that may be posted for a while. Thank you all very much 🙂
As I sit here at my parents’ kitchen table, all I can do is laugh!
Across from my is my cousin, Alyrical, sketching and it’s BEAUTIFUL!
Why am I laughing? Well, this past weekend we were named “2 Blind Mice”. See where I have limited vision in my right eye, my cousin in legally blind in the right eye. Yet she is using her God given talent to create a work of art.
Every time I have felt discouraged I go to my baby cousin for advise! Even though we are nearly 10 years apart we’ve ALWAYS been more like sisters than cousins…this is something that I have grown to cherish especially now.
At my recent ophthalmology appointment, we walked outside to wait on my dad to come and pick us up. I turned to her and was like “I feel so stupid when I sit in there! I get NONE of the answers correct and I feel like the doctors and nurses are looking at me like I’m nuts.” She turned to me and laughed. I began to laugh too, because I realized that THIS is must what she has felt like for the past year and a half.
This condition has been teaching me a LOT!
- Life is too short.
- Family is EVERYTHING!
- Your current job means NOTHING when you are no longer able to work.
So with that being said… Live people! LIVE!!!
~Love, Peace, and SOOOOOUL!!!
