I was so excited to get to spend a beautiful
lunch with Lydia . (If you haven't read her blog and you'll find yourself Seeing Beautiful in new ways.) I'm wearing my beautiful necklace from her site as I type this :)! We met at the lobby of the hotel not having met before. I felt instantly like I was off to lunch with a friend. We spent a yummy lunch on a beautiful sunny day getting to know each other better and finding more and more that we had in common! Cricket and I absolutely loved our time with her. Thank you.
An interesting bonus from the trip was this session at the conference: Sight Unseen: Grief and Vision Loss. Heather Marshall-Fleenor, shared her journey of vision loss. I found myself saying -- ah, can relate to that experience ... yes,felt that emotion before. She also had a degenerative eye condition so shared the experience of loss - adjusting - loss - adjusting. Cricket is not shy :) so afterwards we went up and had a chance to visit with Heather.
May you have a beautiful weekend. We had snow this morning and now the weekend is expected to be sunny and warm. Crazy, Utah Spring weather! As I type this I recognize this is how my week felt ... much was spent dealing with flashy lights in vision - craziness of Retinitis Pigmentosa while juggling a busy week and now feels peaceful and sunny.
