Group 6 : Abrar, Alzahraa, Rowa, Lojain
As a child I did not know the importance of being grateful. I never thought that someday I would lose something significantly important. I was a child who would always complain about everything, crying so loud and disturbing my parents, even in picnics. Until one life changing day I knew that I have a weak sight and that I will not be able to see without glasses again.
My blindness started when I was nine years old. I was in Arabic class and the teacher asked me to read from the board. I stood up in an attempt to figure out the letters and words written on the board. I struggled so hard that my eyes started shrinking. My teacher immediately noticed and called my parents telling them about my situation. In that same day, my parents took me to the optometrist and that is when I learned that I am partially blind and that I need to start wearing glasses.
I still wear glasses until now, wishing if I had the ability to see without them. I wake up every day seeing everything so blurry. But, I still thank God for teaching me this lesson, and making me filled with gratitude and for all the blessings I have in my life and all the ones that are coming my way.
