Beautful wild flowers that I can see, thank you God

Last month at a routine eye test I was told I had macular degeneration.
It horrified me to hear that I would gradually lose my sight.
I have had some sleepless nights and have worried so much,  that some days I couldn't concentrate to do anything.
 
But today I have seen a Consultant Ophthalmologist privately and he examined my eyes
and there is nothing wrong with them at all!!

 
'Stop worrying'.. he kept saying.  At one point when I was chin on the machine and he was shining lights into my eyes into which I had had drops to enlarge the pupil, I was hyperventilating!
How could I not?
I thought I was losing my sight.
So thanks to the Lord I can see.
These wild flowers grow in my garden bought many years ago from the WI stall in Chelmsford market and have travelled with me from house to house!
And a joyous sight in my garden, which I look at each time I take a little walk up the path.
(Not my photos but from a garden nursery site)
 We had cream doughnuts with our morning coffee, not a regular occurrence.
And DH and I have been out for lunch to celebrate
 
So thank you, thank you, thank you Lord for prayers answered.
It has been a wonderful Friday!!

How relieved you must be! Have you contacted the original doctor and told him/her that he/she was mistaken? I would not return to him/her ever again. In the meantime, enjoy the flowers!
