I was a little confused yesterday so I posted the final draw give-away opportunity for 21 SECRETS yesterday and here is this week's Thankful Thursday. Thinking of my gratitude image for the letter 'E' was a little challenging...but I decided that I am extremely thankful for my eyes, for my vision which allows me to see my daughters as they grow, to watch the changing prairie and mountain skies and the colours of the seasons, to draw and mix colour and add pattern to canvas. I was twelve when I received my first pair of glasses...a difficult experience for me as it was the 1970's (four eyes was a term bandied about) and my mother delivered them to my classroom. I was painfully shy and to have everyone's eyes upon me as I tried my new glasses on for the first time was not easy...but, oh, to see again was such a treat. Throughout the years I've always valued my sight above everything and so I am grateful for my eyes.
