As you know I am blind and so I have had my ups and downs. What I have learned is to be thankful for everything. I use to think my blindness was making it hard for me. Then I realized I was making it hard for me. Today, I am thankful for my blindness because I can inspire others to do the impossible. I can be an example of what you can do when challenges face you. I can walk a 400 mile journey to help others, and I can be grateful for the journey my own blindness brings to me. I realize blindness is a part of me, but I also know I have 20/20 vision of the heart. Be thankful for everything and you’ll never be blindsided because all of us have unlimited possibilities!
