I need reading glasses. I am a reading teacher , a knitter, a writer, and all these things require me wearing my glasses. So many of my daily activities require me wearing my glasses. The only thing I can do without my glasses is drive, but I still need them in the car to read anything on the dashboard.
I got tired of always saying, “Where are my glasses? Has anybody seen my glasses?” My family and my students got tired of always looking for my glasses. One day, one of my students said, “Mrs. Lummer, why don’t you wear your glasses around your neck?” I replied, “Because it will make me look old.” My student replied in the kindest of voices, “It won’t make you look old.”
So, I started to wear my glasses. It certainly does make my life easier. I never have to look for my glasses. They are always there waiting for me. And guess what? When I take my glasses off, I don’t look younger. I am very thankful for my students. They teach me something everyday.
Love, Terry (aka, Mrs. Lummer)
