Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory, but now it's blurry, no literally.

Here I sit at my kitchen table.

It is hard to see.

As every minute passes, I get older. 

What I have noticed changing the most in this last year, are my eyes… my eyes are getting older. Heck, I have had them since I was born. Not only have I not been able to see long distances without corrective lenses since I was in the fifth grade, but now, alas, my near sightedness is now failing. Anything that is 18 inches or closer, I struggle to see! Sad, really.

I love to read.

I love to hand write.

I love to draw.

I love to type.

Ahhhh how I miss the days where I did not have this struggle. 

I now also know why they advise you not to have babies in your forties… 

It’s not just because it may be harder on your body, No! It is MOST definitely because when you are holding them in your arms, snuggling them, you won’t be able to see them...

they are nothing but blur. 

Being a human who loves to wear contact corrective lenses, and has always worn them, I am now at the point of trying to adapt into glasses. Ah, glasses, how I loathe thee. Why, you ask? I can’t see out of the sides. My peripheral vision is blurred. OH the dilemma I am faced with. 

Where are the large print Bibles?

Where are the large print word finds?

Where is the zoom button for my desktop screen?

Where is the Accessibility Settings on my phone to make everything larger?

No, No, No… I do not want bifocals, but I really do think the time has come.
