Great things about being blind. Does my blindness help me to meet wonderful people?
Yesterday, I spent some time with a friend who also has a vision disability, and a wonderful friend of ours who started out being a volunteer but also has become a friend. I started to think about how lucky I am to meet the great people I do. Then, I wondered, as I often do, about whether or not my blindness contributes to the people I meet. I'm sure it does. Also, because I am blind, I tend not to judge people by appearances but by what they say and what they do. Sometimes, I wonder if I would have the same friends or same interests if I wasn't blind.
