One of the greatest, most joyful moments while in Jamaica happened over and over again every time I found that perfect pair of glasses for [a patient]. Their faces light up as you watch as they look around for the first time in who knows how long, able to see clearer than before.
While in Jamaica I learned to enjoy every moment for what it is worth. Look at things in a positive way to find the joy in life, “The glass is half full”. When you enjoy the small things in life, the larger surprises are almost to much to handle.
My greatest challenge was packing up. We served so many people in such a short amount of time, however there were still individuals there that needed to be seen. People travel from all over the island to participate in activities such as this. I plan to return every year for this mission (crossing my fingers to be able to stay for 2 weeks this year )
BEST EXPERIENCE EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
