I went to the eye doctor today for the first time since 2004 (not wise since I have a genetic predisposition to blindness). The report is good:
- my optic nerve looks great (for a middle-aged woman)
- my eye pressure was within the appropriate limits
- my pupils are symmetrical
- the vision in my left eye deteriorated a bit
I am inching my way toward bifocals, but I still don’t need them. Hurray! I should expect them within the next year or so but, for now, I don’t need them. Praise the Lord for answered prayer!
Katherine the Great had her eyes examined today as well. Her results were even better: perfect vision. She definitely inherited the paternal “excellent eyesight” gene, another reason for praise. I had glasses in third grade. Ugh!
God is truly great.
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
