Storyline

Joan devoted her life to her daughter Joy, to her husband Joe, a gym teacher and her colleague, and especially to her job, teaching at a blind school. The she gets a macula-degeneration, which normally occurs slowly with seniors but is mysteriously accelerated, making her colorblind almost overnight and completely blind as a bat in days. After a very slow and difficult transition, she returns to work, where being blind like the kids has its merits too. Then medical misery strikes Joe even harder: the jock gets a tumor, the operation costs his right eye, but he stays generally sick, and doesn't survive. Once again she picks up the pieces of her life, and his time gets a new partner from her past, high school friend Jim Brock, who is now a reputed butterfly-expert... Written by KGF Vissers

Be thankful for what you have
26 March 2004 | by ForevertweetieSee all my reviews

This is the story of the amazing courage of a woman who faces so many heartaches in such a short time but displays the strength and willingness to go on no matter what. I definately recommend this movie to anyone. It makes us realize we must be thankful for the things we sometimes take for granted. This woman is an inspiration to all of us. Just remember to thank God each and every day for the sunrises and sunsets, and the skies filled with stars, and smile from strangers. In short, Just be thankful for what you have. Thank you, Joan Brock, for sharing your amazing story with the world. May God bless you.
