I’m grateful I can see.

An eyeball

There are several reasons why I’m grateful for eyes:

  1. They’re fun to look at. Ever look at a newborn’s eyes? Your significant other’s?
  2. They interpret light. My ears can’t interpret light. My feet can’t. But my eyes can. They can perceive depth, color, texture, etc.
  3. They inspired the creation of the camera, and we use to our eyes to look at photos of good memories.

Paraphrasing a quote from Dune, “don’t rely too much on sight, it dulls your other senses”. I wonder what I’d be able to see if I didn’t have eye sight. I suppose I could be grateful for that too: that life is still wonderful even without eye sight.
