Dear CLF members and friends,
I have a confession to make…mea culpa…I was wearing glasses that were too old and scratched up. My glasses are what help me function in the world, and I was a bad fearless leader, that’s right I was. I meant to get my eyes checked two years ago, but I got busy, then last year? Well, we know how last year went don’t we? Between big exciting things and awful things, I ended up not getting my new glasses. For the past six months, I was feeling my way around. I had stopped driving long distances as much, in fact I wasn’t doing more than grocery shopping if I couldn’t help it.
To make matters worse, I couldn’t figure out WHY I was exhausted after working on the second book for more than 10 minutes at a time. Well, two years passed, without me taking care of my most essential need: My eyesight.
Do I know better? Yup and Uh huh…But I did what lots of moms do, and wives, and husbands and dad’s do, I put me last, and forgot that if you don’t take care of it, you don’t always notice how bad it’s getting.
So, now that I’ve publically beaten myself up for letting me run around with crap all for eyesight, here’s the wonderful news.
For the very first time in my life my vision has been corrected to 20/25. Usually the best they can get is 20/35!!
I picked up my new glasses yesturday and I couldn’t believe everything I could see! I don’t know if I can still register all of the changes! It’s WONDERFUL…and the best part, I got to crochet, and see the whole piece and not just one stitch at a time… It’s amazing.
So expect things to move along a little better now, because as I told my family when I walked into the house and saw the details of the dirty house…ARG…”Mom, can see now, and you’re all in trouble!”
It goes for the industry now…I can see, and oh my are you all TROUBLE!” (not the CLF’ers of course!)
