Today marks 4 years since my vision loss. I recall that day vividly. It was one of the best days of my life. Just a lot of little things on the journey that day that made it so. Initially, the vision loss devastated my heart and soul; but I am beyond that now. While I grieve the loss of the many things I loved to do, I have gained back much more in new ways since then.
As Helen Keller put it: I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
