My ‘View’

Things are not always as they appear to be on the surface…unfortunately, some people assume and see what they want to see, that’s not my problem.

Just about a month ago now, while attending a widows meeting at church, I was having a conversation with a friend, seeing her with both eyes one minute, and in the blink of an eye, it was as if someone pulled a veil over my right eye. One second I could see, the next all I saw was light and blur.

A hemorrhage….hopefully in time it would heal. In the meantime, adjusting to life with limited vision. Humbling. Scary. Unless I shared what I was experiencing, no one knew, no one could tell. I was my ‘normal’ self. In truth, I was not. I am not.

Unfortunately, my retina detached. I knew exactly when it happened. All the while I could still ‘see’ light, then I couldn’t. The veil got darker..black. I had eye surgery Wednesday. I have awesome drs who tell me all went well. Time will heal and I will see again. I pray anyway 🙏

There are experiences in our lives that forever change a person. 29 months ago Jim’s death did that to me. Losing vision, even for a month or two or three, has as well. My ‘perspective’ and my ‘view’ of my world literally and figuratively have changed. Where this journey is taking me remains to be ‘seen’, but I’m open and ready for it…..

  1. Thoughts are with you Linda must have been quite frightening. Praying that you will continue to make a good recovery & your sight restored.
    Mum had another eye condition & prayed to St Lucy, patron saint of eyes and her condition never worsened 🙏

  2. We are all on our paths. Some see with their eyes and souls, some see only what they want to see. I know a little of what it’s like to not see well and then see what I had been missing when I put on my glasses. I appreciate beauty so much more. I feel that you see with your eye(s) and your soul. Thank you for sharing your story.

Have something to share....I'd love to hear it!!!
