“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie

When Amy’s first eye exam found her vision problem, I knew it was no mistake she passed her vision screenings. Hence, Illinois passed two children’s vision laws in four years. No one thought this could happen.
Now Vision First is trying to get our form accepted by the State of Illinois. I remind myself daily to trust in the process and to remain patient and persistent anyways.
Believe gratitude is the key that turns trials into triumphs.
May gratitude fill your heart today and everyday.
