The Beauty of Creation this Spring
I am scheduled for my right eye operation Monday. Lord willing, I won't see lop-sided anymore when the patch comes off Tuesday morning. I have enjoyed doing the before-and-after thing, closing my left eye and not being able to see then closing my right eye and experiencing the joy of restored vision all over again. But lop-sided vision has its challenges and I will be happy to have it all behind me soon. And the best part is my sight won't be "back to normal". I have worn corrective lenses since the 3rd grade. No more glasses or contacts for me. Hallelujah!
I wonder how long it will take me to break the habit of reaching for my glasses on the bedside table first thing when I awake in the morning, or how long before I'll stop thinking I need to protect my contacts from dust or wind. Regardless of the time, I hope I never lose the wonder of sight and gratitude for having mine.
