How are you?
Every Day I am asked "How are You?"
My response is always, "Fine, thank you "
But what I would really like to say is, "Yes ... I am O.K."

I Have My Sight ...
although not perfect, I can still see the glorious sunsets,  the antics of a puppy, the smile of a child, and the most important ...
I can see if there are any bugs in my food..

I Have My Hearing ...
even though impaired I can hear the music that takes
the wrinkles out of my day. I can hear others tell me they love me!
And every morning I can hear the snap, crackle, pop
 ..even if it is the cereal.

I Have My sense Of Smell ...
although marred with allergies I could tell if the house is on fire, or the baby needs changing. Oh and isn't it heavenly to smell that first cup of coffee in the morning ?

I Still Have My Sense Of Taste ...
I can tell when something has gone bad or sour,
even though I have to wonder about my own cooking sometimes.

I Still Have My sense Of Touch ...
even though some people say I am really touched ...
The joy of touching another, loving another,
petting your dog or cat, makes you feel you are not alone...

I am O.K. you see.
I can walk, even though I may stumble --
I can talk, sometimes without stopping --
I can laugh, even when nothing is funny --
and I can cry, when sad or even happy.....
In fact, I think I am better than just Okay!
So How are YOU?
