Granny was my eyes

Whenever I think of my beloved granny, tears come flowing down my cheeks.  I am so fortunate that I had the luxury of having her around when I was a child.  She read to me, she described things to me, and she taught me.  She was kind and she was gentle and she never lost patience with me.  She taught me how to write, how to tie my shoes, and never let my blindness get in the way.


Granny described all kinds of things to me.  The waves rolling onto the beach.  The boats out in the water.  Leaves sailing down the river.  Candles in church.  Birthday cakes on a table and plates loaded with all kinds of delicious food.  Granny delighted in telling me about what our dogs when they were playing on the beach.  She described people walking along and everything around me.  Granny was my eyes!


I thank granny for all that she did for me.  When I first received vision, granny was gone by then so I was never able to see her face to face but my family showed me pictures of her and it's what I have well preserved in my memory bank.  Thanks granny!
