gratitude-a-thon day 850: eye see you

Looking at this video of a baby getting glasses, and seeing his mom for the first time, made me think about the amazingosity of being able to see.

I grew up with a dad who was already blind in one eye and when I born, and the threat of losing the sight in his remaining eye loomed like global warming. And while you can dismiss this idea of being grateful for my two working eyes, as trite, it is exactly this kind of thing, that we so easily forget is not a given, that we should stop every so often and get down on the ground and be thankful for. (I mean, if we didn’t have your eyes, you wouldn’t be reading this.)
