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.

  1. If my husband hadn't acquired a disability, we probably would never have met, because we wouldn't have been at that same disability event at the same time... so it makes you think!
