A Summer Saturday Morning

I had an opportunity to go to a lake on a summer Saturday morning. What a gift – it was beautiful, peaceful and spiritual. Not just at a lake…but in a canoe on a lake for the first time. There is something of value with pushing the blade of a paddle through still water. That action itself, even without being able to actually see the water ripple, brought serenity to my soul.

I was slightly worried about not being able to see where I was going. The person who was steering served as my guide and teacher. I was surprised yet again, I was able to accomplish something new even with vision loss. My vision loss reminds me time and again, that I can experience something new in a good way; that even those ‘old’ things I enjoyed doing, I can still do, but in a different way.

This summer Saturday morning in a canoe on a lake was awesome!
