My husband suffers from a form of blindness. He can be standing right in front of something and not see it. This blindness most often occurs when he opens the fridge. For some reason he can’t find the last of the leftovers and I will hear him call for me. Of course I get annoyed that I have to get up from another room to locate something I know is ten inches from his face.
“Ah”, he’ll say, “I didn’t see that”.
No kidding Sherlock.
My in-laws live on the edge of a cornfield that attracts a lot of wildlife. Turkey, deer, groundhogs and an abundance of songbirds visit the field. A favorite pastime at their house is to sit around the kitchen table, drink tea, talk and enjoy the view out the wide, glass double doors. Now here is where my blindness is acutely evident. My husband will sit there and pass comments like, “Looks like that Blue Bird is mad at something… that groundhog is eating dad’s vegetables again…” and, “Wow, 23 turkeys this time.” He can’t see his socks on the floor but he can see a gnat on the back of a humming bird at 150 yards! Meanwhile I’m like a kid lost in a Where’s Waldo book, but once I see what he sees we enjoy the moment together.
We all suffer from some blindness at times, the sort where we’re looking at something but not really seeing it. I found this image on the Internet. The FedEx logo has an image in it. Can you find it? 50% of people will not see it, while the other 50% will see it right away.
Did you see it? I won’t tell, but you click here it will take you to the answer.
When my husband and I first heard and read the concepts for the Eat Right diet we knew, without hesitation, that they were right. The idea of using our blood type as a marker for the foods we eat made total and complete sense. “I got it” right from the start, it was really that simple for me. I never hesitated to try it and after all these years we’ve never looked back. It is one of the things we see eye to eye on.
I find that some people are just like us, they just “get it,” while others need someone to take them by the hand and show them, like pointing out a deer in the forest. Others, sadly, will never see, and sadder still is the fact that they are often those closest to us.
It’s unfortunate but I understand some blindness will never be cured, but my wish for all of you is to “get it”, to see. And if you are one of those people that needs to be led by the hand I encourage you to join www.dadamo.com.
