  • When I was a boy, I prayed to receive a horse.
    I didn’t get it.
    It was not the only thing for which I prayed that I did not get.
    I also prayed for my eyes to be healed so that I wouldn’t have to wear eyeglasses.
    More than half a century later, I still lack a horse, and I still wear glasses—now with tri-focal lenses.
    While I would have liked not to need eyeglasses, I am thankful for them and the vision they make possible.
