This true-life story is soo touching! Maybe you could get it published in a magazine for the blind.

Very well done in conveying the realities of the Visually Impaired. When you become aquainted with this disability through the "eyes" others you really are never the same. Enjoyed this very much.
Your narrative is simple, touching and pure. I wholly enjoyed this story.

Maybe something you can help me with - can you tell me how you re-apply italics? I haven't yet figured out how to do this after submitting a piece. Is there a secret? :)

A great piece of writing with a message that ministers to all of us. I love how you show that through her submission, "all those things accomplished their goals. They were pruning me."

Beth, what a beautiful, extraordinary story. I love it. These lines were food for my soul tonight:

‘Don’t doubt, don’t worry, don’t be angry. Abandon yourself to Him.’

Beautiful word choices--and hitting me right where I am with the Lord right now. I don't understand all that is happening around me, but I TRUST God to lead me.

Does she see anything at all, or does she simply know the One who calls her name?

I LOVE THIS LINE! It is enough to know the One who calls my name.

So well done. This should be shared in other venues--it is worthy of a larger audience.
