With much gratitude: Now I can really appreciate

I really do not know that many people who have had the privilege to be born with very limited vision, to get a whole amount of it as a teen, and then to lose it as an adult about 25 years later.  That's me, and this is probably what has enabled me to appreciate things so much more.

For me, I have had the opportunity to live in both worlds, so to speak.  I know what it is like to really appreciate very limited vision.  I know what it is like to savor and enjoy so many things with so much vision, and now I know what it is like to be plunged back into a world with almost complete darkness.

I am not saying that along the way things have been easy.  I have had to endure several bumps and roadblocks, but at the same time I have had the pleasure and privilege of enjoying so many things.

I do not think that I could ever fully describe how I felt when I received new vision for the first time but what I can say is that it all enabled me to appreciate things that so many others would normally take for granted. Then the feelings I experienced when I lost almost all of it in 2004.

Now I can really appreciate so much more.
