"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

bigger and better things



As I mentioned before, it's time for me to face reality.  I picked up my glasses today.  I haven't worn any for ten years now, and those were only readers.  I knew it was getting bad, but I kind of got used to the small little world my vision provided.  It was kind of cozy.  

One of my daughters tried on my glasses and said, "it's weird, everything seems brighter and happier with them on." ~  So...they're rose colored glasses.  People always accused me of wearing them, now I actually own a pair!




It's a beautiful, beautiful world out there... who knew?
!!Love you granny... xxoo


Blessings, Debbie

  1. Around Christmas time my sugar was so messed up that my sight was cloudy even with glasses. It was a struggle to read and actually almost impossible. I was so thankful when the dr. changed my medicine and slowly my sight returned to normal. Like someone whitewashed my world! Hope you adjust quickly.

  2. I had to start wearing bi-focals when I turned forty. On my last eye exam I was told I have a cataract on one of my eyes. I thought this was stuff that happened to OLD people, not people in their forties! Your glasses are lovely and now you can see this beautiful world God gave us! Have a super weekend Debbie.

  3. I remember when my son first got glasses when he was a little boy. The look of wonderment upon his face was priceless. I'm deaf and where really powerful hearing aids, when they aren't working right, it always seems like the world is off kilter. Amazing how our senses work!

  4. I am still wearing readers I keep buying ones from the dollar store because I either forget them or break them. I have prescription ones at home for the computer. I should go get my eyes checked again and maybe I can get some of those rose coloured ones. I like that and that is how i see the world anyway. They are a nice style. B

  6. I am just thinking that if you can see the world so much better and brighter now, I cannot even imagine the amazing photography you are going to be sharing here!! Ahhhh, enjoy your rose-colored glasses, my friend.

    Cheryl...who at age 50 is still refusing to get that first pair of bifocals (denial?)

  8. At my annual check-up, my Dr. recommended that I get my eyes checked... age, perhaps? You make it sound like that might be a good thing to do! LOL! Glad you are seeing things brighter through your rose colored glasses!! blessings ~ tanna

  9. I am right there with you. I have glasses that I carry with me "just in case"...I need to really see something. Can't get used to wearing them all the time at all yet....I don't think I got the magic happy kind.

  10. Good for you for getting it done, love your choice of glasses! After I read your post about your eye exam/car problems, I took the leap myself and made an eye appointment and in a few weeks will be picking out my new pair. Thanks for being a good example. xo

  14. Nice specs. I'm forever accusing my husband of wearing RTG (rose tinted glasses). Usually when he talks about our dog! I have to get it in before he accuses me of wearing them. Enjoy your expanded world.

  15. Debbie, you have a wonderful way of "seeing" things and putting them in the right perspective. I have had to wear my glasses for close to two years now. Prior I wore contacs but had a serious problem and the eye dr. advised me NOT to wear contacs again. I still can't get used to them. :( xo

  16. Nice glasses! Now when you get accused of wearing rose colored, you can just say "Yep! Right here." My mom tells the story of when she first got glasses when she was younger - She never knew trees had leaves! She thought there were all just naturally fuzzy.

  17. Amazing how that is, I hassled my husband to no end when he got reading glasses. But I noticed that I didn't read anymore nor sew because it was so much work, then one night he said, just try them on, same thing happened all of a sudden I could see and I realized how much I had missed by not wearing glasses. :) I still forget to take them with me when we go grocery shopping, you should see sometimes what I bring home. :) Vanity, oh vanity, not you but me. :)
    I like that your glasses are rose colored. Best place to stay.

  18. I can relate-- with the cozy world you see without glasses. It is cozy-- annoying when watching TV, though. I need to see the opthamologist to get my vision checked-- I know I have needed glasses for the 10 years!

  20. It happens to most of us, sooner or later we can't seem to see as good and we need to get that dreaded pair of glasses. Have fun seeing life in its true colors. JB

  21. Hee he. I loved that you actually now can say that you look at life with rose coloured ( British spelling [o= )glasses.

    Enjoy discovering the world all over again.

    Blessings and ((HUGS))!

  25. Some days I could use some rose coloured glasses. I'm pretty sure at my next appointment I will need glasses. Enjoy that new view on life!

  26. I have been wearing progressive lens for about three years and cannot see without them. This is after having PERFECT vision.....It is kinda sad but then it is always nice to actually "see" what is going on in the world!

  27. It happens. I have readers with different strengths laying around everywhere,just bunches of them- in my car, in my pocketbook, my desk at work, the kitchen, bedside. Lord help us when we go out to eat and one of us is without a set of glasses. Debi
