I always love it when I see my blog friends doing fantastic things.
Cher – creator of The Chicago Files (and an all-round decent human being) has fulfilled a dream this year to publish some of her work, and I was delighted to see that she has been included in the latest release of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive, Live Happy.
With 101 stories that inspire positive thinking, there’s something for everyone who are looking to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
Her story, which can be found on Page 191, is titled ‘When the Blind Taught Me to See’ was inspired by her volunteering time at Blind Service Association where she lives in Chicago.
In the story I write about how much the blind/low-vision community has taught me that everyone can experience happiness with the same things, just in different ways. I literally learned to appreciate the every day blessings we have, and to be grateful for the small things in life. In reality, they are actually big things, such as seeing a puppy wag its tail, or hearing a baby laugh. These are all precious gifts.
