My baby brother was born with crossed eyes. I remember when, as a wee little toddler, he had to have corrective eye surgery. He came home from the hospital with a patch on his eye and his little arms and hands all bandaged up to keep him from touching it. Afterwards, he had to do eye exercises to strengthen his eye muscles.
This gratitude gathering is an awful lot like those eye exercises. It’s a retraining of the “eye muscles”, if you will, to see the abundance of blessings all around us in our daily life. Many of us are born with defective vision…eyes that are prone to see the things that are wrong in our lives, the things we lack. It’s not too late for some eye exercises. Start gathering gratitude. It’s good for your eyes.
