Welcome to week TWENTY-TWO of my dear, dear friend Patty Wysong's From A 2 Z 4 U and me. We're working through the alphabet - one letter each Tuesday. No rules, other than your post has to relate to the letter of the week. Link up at Ordinary Lives and check out everyone else's post. Click on the graphic above for more details, and stop by Patty's blog to link up.
Then I remembered a "V word" that has a great impact on my life, especially over the past eight years. And that word is VISION.
My eyesight isn't the best - 20/400, to be exact. I've had glasses (or contacts - briefly, anyway) since sixth grade. My husband has been in corrective lenses since first grade. So, even before eight years ago, vision was an issue. We just assume our kids will eventually need glasses.

About five years ago (three year after Marc's turmor was found), I wrote a story for the FaithWriters writing challenge about sight and vision. While it isn't true, I don't think I could have written it if my husband and I hadn't been through what we did. Click here if you'd like to read "Crystal Clear." Even though it's one of my very early entries, it's probably one of my very faves.
So, that's my V. Be sure to stop by Peejers' blog for more V posts (and be back here for next week's - I already know what I'm doing with "W" :D).
