A Good Friend Will…

A good friend will take a blind girl shopping.

~ She will describe every pair of black workout pants on the rack in complete detail. (That sounds cute!)

~ She will hold them up to show you the length and let you feel the material. (Very important… they have to feel yummy!)

~ She will tell you how they look when you try them on. (Does my ass look good in these? Ha ha.. Ok, for real, does it?)

~ She will pick out a cute lavender shirt for you to try on, because she thinks the color will look good on you. (She was right!)

I rely on my friends & family more than ever to help me do things I can’t do Or figure out by myself anymore. I can’t see clothing details, the size, or the price. I need others to look at that stuff for me and I appreciate it.  (Remember… I’m a control freak! Stepping away from the control has not been an easy process!)

What I can see is true friendship. The friendship of the people that will do whatever it takes to help me feel comfortable in any situation.

The friend who took me shopping today was Gabby Marrewa.  She has gone above and beyond for me as I slowly lost my vision. She has watched me go from fully sighted to legally blind. I could never, ever thank her enough for all she does for me as I transition into a Girl Gone Blind.
