With my face in my coffee mug, after another sleepless night of taking care of my babies I found this in my inbox. What a great way to start a day! Thanks Chrys. XOXO!
My name is Crys Bradley and I just discovered your blog via a post you had tagged Tracy Eikleberry in on Facebook (he and I went to high school together).
As a person with low vision myself, I read anything I find on Facebook related to blindness, especially when I find it unexpectedly on a friend’s timeline. 😉
It’s great to find another visually impaired person with a positive outlook on life. Sometimes I feel like people expect us to be sad all the time.
While I’m not a mother and still have a significant amount of vision, I hear myself in the words of your posts. I wish I had found your blog when I still lived in Vegas. I live in Colorado now and I love it. I moved out here because the quality of life I had dreamed of was so readily available. It’s absolutely gorgeous here!
At any rate, I just wanted to commend you on your “full speed ahead” approach on life and motherhood. And I’m so impressed that you braille your own books — what a task! You are an inspiration to someone who wondered how I might raise children with reduced vision. I am often told by friends and coworkers that I do things so fluidly they sometimes “forget” I have an impairment. I too, just do it. But motherhood frightens me. I’ve always said that there are blind mothers everywhere who do it everyday. I guess I need more vicarious experiences. I look forward to reading more of your posts!
All the best,
Isn’t it great when others that live your day to day struggles reach out? I admit that was one reason I also followed your blog. Crys Bradley, come check out my blog. I am also a person with very low vision but it isn’t stopping me. http://www.http/:staceyslifeblog.wordpress.com
Yes Stacey. Together, we can move mountains and change negative perceptions about blindness, and ALL other things we deem important. We do this simply by living and sharing our lives with the world.
