October Story of the Month

The ingenuity at work…

A mom and her teenage daughter came to our office not long ago. Fifteen-year-old Jackie was having a lot of trouble at school. It seems she could not read the print in her text books and was even having trouble seeing the whiteboard in her classrooms. Jackie seemed embarrassed but her mom asked for help: could we help with new glasses for Jackie? “Of course“, I said, but not before she whipped out her home remedy that Jackie had been using for several weeks. Mom came up with a “solution” that showed incredible ingenuity. She had bought the strongest strength glasses she could find at the 99 cent store, and then super glued an old pair of contact lenses on top of them. VOiLA! Jackie could see a little better. Wow—this mom was so smart and came up with something I would never have come up with in a million years…then again I never had to. Every day, I am impressed with the families we serve and REALLY HAPPY we could provide Jackie with an eye doctor appointment and a pair of glasses a bit less embarrassing for a darling teenager.
