Tyler received his first pair of eyeglasses a few days ago. When his teacher Mrs. Foster suggested an eye exam I could feel Tyler's outrage and fear. I knew it firsthand. We picked up the glasses on Monday and drove home. Just the two of us. I shared with him my first experience in my glasses. I told him about the trees and the leaves. On the drive home he excitedly described to me all the wonders of the world he could now see in such fantastic clarity. It was a moment to cherish and I gratefully shared it with him. I wonder if he'll remember that drive home as I have remembered mine from so long ago. I hope so.
