Oct. 10th World Sight Day
Today we celebrate our gift of sight. Not that life can’t be valued if one has no sight but to get up every morning and see the day we have been given (also a gift) should bring you joy. The idea of the day is to encourage people to get eye exams and that is a good thing. Sometimes we take our eyesight for granted, but over the years as it changes and blurs you do need to get it corrected. You wouldn’t want to miss those sunrises, or sunsets, because you didn’t take the time to make sure the world really was as you saw it! They say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, beauty is there whether you see it or not, so make sure today you have the opportunity to see it for as long as you can.
How to celebrate – Get an eye exam. Look closely at things with the idea you may never see them again. Check out your prescription for your glasses.
