I am grateful for vision. The ability to see what is as well as what might be.
Reflecting on my previous post on gratitude for silence, I realized many people live in silence due to hearing loss or deafness. Gratitude for silence should be balanced by gratitude for the ability to hear. I cannot imagine seeking a lack of vision or blindness except to avoid seeing the suffering of others.
I am grateful for my vision. The expressions on the faces of friends and loved ones, a sunrise or a sunset, a beautiful painting or photograph, a flower or dramatic landscape. Every morning I open my eyes to the possibility of a new day.
