She was gradually losing her sight. What was once sharp and clear was now blurry and out of focus. She had the means to get treated but the doctors she consulted, didn’t have the answer she wanted. They told her to make peace with this coming disability as there was no option to cure it.

She walked among the spring flowers to imprint their beautiful colors of hope onto her mind forever. She saw beautiful works of art to absorb their beauty in her heart.

When she finally lost her sight, she had beautiful memories forever in her heart.

  1. Cannot even imagine how terrible it would be to be told soon I would be blind. I’m glad she stayed calm and invested in her sighted memories. Beautiful and creative story, Sadje.

  2. This is such a vivid snapshot of how precious the gift of sight is Sadje. We have an incredible sense of memory, whether its with an image, through smelling, hearing, tasting, or touch. Great message! 😘💖😍
