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…..

Fog….A Haiku

Misty veil of fog

Murky Sunlight burning through

Clear, blurry my world

My backyard view this morning

Clear and blurry is my world these days. As I mentioned a few weeks ago , I’ve lost the vision in my right eye. That’s still the case. Looks like I’m dealing with a Vitreous Hemorrhage. Now my eyesight is far from perfect anyway, but let me say how humbling it is to find myself dealing with this. I’m hopeful that my vision, as imperfect as it may be, will be restored. In the meantime, while my view is distorted,  I can still see out of my left eye. 😉

Happy Birthday ❤️🎊

Today is my Jim’s birthday. He would have been 68…instead he is forever 65.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUSBAND ❤️

I Miss you Husband

My Beloved Best Friend..

Your smile, your laugh

Your love that transcends…

Today is your birthday

And we are apart..

I draw strength from our love though

And when the tears start…..

I’ll cry my river..

While deep within my soul..

I feel you with me

And for a little while, 

I’ll pretend, I am whole.
