Learning From My Eyes That See

Updated on September 25, 2011

Discover The Real Beauty

Each day we take for granted the beauty that is hidden from our sight but everyone else easily sees

Usually the first thing that is noticed when we first meet

The shape from round to sometimes almond

Beautiful colors from brown to hazel and then sometimes a lovely baby blue

Our own personal looking glass to see the world

We have been taking in every color and light since the beginning of our sight

We have learned to put voices with pictures and feelings and emotions with the numerous visions

More dependent on this sense than any other

It is our livelyhood and a neccessity to our survival

How is it in a world with so many interests

That our eyes are not mentioned and constantly praised

Like our God for giving us the world that we witness and watch

Later in life we may find many challanges that compromise the beauty that we see

Fighting glocoma and cateracts

We can never forget diabetes is among the many other diseases that take our sight away

A few of us had experienced glasses and contacts to help us improve our vision

Due to lack of clearity and a blurred vision from the start

Even some children and a few adults tragicly experience a great loss from an injury or accident

Then there are a few who have been deprived all their life from any sight

They are the most wonderful children and adults my deep compassion and love constantly embrace

For everything that I try to accomplish in this life

My sight is so important that I know I have been blessed

Many times over for it makes all other things silly in comparrision

As I type, read and write all this with my amazing sight

      Sunnie Day I live a marvelous life with my eyes and glued to the next movement and color that I can see.How wonderful it is that it is you in the distance waving hi to me.I wave back and friendships are born.On really sunny days my eyes are sensitive to the light I have to make sure I wear sunglasses or my eyes will start tearing uncontrollably.It is today that it is Sunnie and bright and not a tear in sight.Just a goodness and a gentleness and everything positive in my life.Thank you for being a real joy to be around.May the sunshine through all the darkness and love be on the horizon.Peace constantly shared with those who are here.No worries no fears.

      I have seen many people suffer with Glaucoma and can only have empathy for them as I never have suffered with such a grave disease.

      However I do suffer with a diabetes an can certainly say that as the last few years has passed me by; my eye sight has been blurred and those beautiful morning now are a little harder to enjoy.

      We should never take for granite the beauty God has allowed us to see at the very moment we are seeing it!!!

      Great Hub and one that many others need to read...

      "Quill Again" My mom too has Glaucoma and has to take those darn drops sometimes three times a day and another kind two times a day.I see how they sting and are so hard to put in.I help her when I can.Thank God for them or she would of lost her sight years ago.Heart4theword Years ago I also injuried one of my eyes and thank God with advancements in technology I can see out of that eye today.But each day I have a reminder what it is not to see.Dim Flaxewick I see your beauty light up my page as I read on need I say more.I have been fortunate to see what other people can't (A life filled with love)I have always loved my life and wonder why others don't open their eyes and see what I see.Thanx everyone for your wonderful comments.

      One of the greatest hubs you´ve written. How grateful we should be for our sight even if it is poor as we get older.

      Oh To never have seen a sunset or a kitten playing.

      You really made me glad to be alive reading this.

      You are very special, dream On.

      The power of vision, is a tremendous gift:) Then those who don't have the eye sight, have a amazing vision that our physical eyes can't see. Keep your path of vision clear:)

      Sight is the key to many blessing and we are called to look after what we have. I learned some 12 years ago that I suffer with Glaucoma. Drops have certainly made a great difference but I have lost close to 40% of my vision especially in my left eye. I can tell immediately when I need to step back from the screen... please look into anything abnormal with your vision.

      Blessings and Hugs

      Vinaya Ghimire What do they suggest?There are so many options today.Have you noticed any changes in your vision?Maybe all you need is reading glasses.Don't put it off. The better you can see the more fun you will have enjoying this beautiful life.I was reading and my eyes must of been tired because the print started to get blurry and I said to myself it must be the lighting.I put down the book down and took a walk.Thanx so much for reading and sharing.Next time I hope to see you in perfect sight.
