“Some people might have taken the news of going blind as the end of the world. Most would have given up and thought their life was over. Well, it did the total opposite to me.”~Sky
I think Sky’s words in today’s post are especially meaningful with October being Blindness Awareness Month.
Did You Know?
The World Health Organization estimates that there are over 285 million visually impaired people, 245 million with low vision and 39 million totally blind people. Sixty-five million people have cataracts — and in the U.S. alone, over ten million people have retinal diseases that deteriorate peripheral and night vision. One of the major causes of blindness is uncorrected refractive errors causing blurred vision, leaving people unable to clearly see images on the retina. (source: nationaltoday.com)
I found strength and determination I never believe I had before sight loss. I have become the person God always knew I was. Becoming blind has saved my life. I see things differently literally. Having a great sense of humor is also a plus.

effort and struggle”
