Words of Wisdom

I may have mentioned to everyone a little while back that with the launch of Abigail and the monthly series “Women on the Move,” I’ve been highlighting select excerpts from the featured ladies’ posts and promoting them on social media. This week’s Words of Wisdom are from my friend, fellow peer adviser and blogger Amy Bovaird. These little nuggets provide deeper insight into the reality of what it’s like to blind.
