This is not about glasses that are half full or half empty-well OK, sort of I guess. Really though this is about the kind of glasses that help you to see and about life lessons.

This morning as I was putting on my glasses I remembered an old friend who had worn “coke bottle” glasses for as long as I had known her. One day I complained that I had worn glasses since I was 12 years old. It was one of those “Poor Me” kind of whiney comments.

She looked at me and said, ” Judith I have worn glasses for as long as I can remember and I think it is such blessing. Without my glasses, I could not see.” Obviously, that was the end of my complaints about wearing glasses, and the end too of my complaining about a host of other things. Sometimes it takes just a word or just one person to change your perspective.

Are YOU listening for that one word?
