Years ago I had progressives that drove me nuts. I think they make them different these days in that my new ones are truly progressive from top to bottom and no need to turn your head this way or that. I use only this pair for computer work so they're always near my computer. Only thing I don't like about them is that the lenses are plastic and are very hard to clean. Try to get the lenses in glass.



I recommend the Peace Prayer of St. Francis. I've memorized it so I can say it first thing in the morning. The line, "where there is injury, pardon" refers to healing the sick. Here it is, if anyone is interested.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:

where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I not so much seek

to be consoled as to console,

to be understood as to understand,

to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
