The gift of eyesight is truly more of a treasure than we will ever know. Consider that even though you may have your eyesight, what it would be like if everything appeared to be shades of the same color. How about when someone next to you says, “Oh, don’t you just love the color of those flowers?” Tough question right?

Part of life is living in color for lack of a better phrase, but that is because everything tends to have its own unique color. In many cases, what you are looking at might be a shade of red, but if you couldn’t tell the difference, how would that make you feel when others can? It’s difficult, knowing that there is something in front of you that you just cannot see when others clearly do.
Here is an example for you:
Seeing Christmas All in Golden Brown
Christmas is one of those favorite times of year when everyone just loves to see Christmas colors and decorations. Those who are red/green color blind cannot. Those who have this challenge, see shades of golden brown, so to them, there are not pretty greens and reds. Valentine’s Day is about the same, and hence the reason many of these folks use the phrase, “You have a heart of gold!”
Those of us who have the ability to see color have one of the greatest gifts in life. We can see the colors of the flowers and the trees, birds, tropical fish, and we could go on and on.
So, what does the grass look like? Ah, probably fields of gold. This is a day in the life of someone who is color blind.

“I used to think I had a genetic defect that just couldn’t be helped. Now I see everything in a new light. Flowers are just so astonishingly beautiful they take your breath away.” – A. Bristol, GP
