The Gallery: Eyes 2014

I’ve got blue eyes – just verging towards the greener side of blue.

My husband has blue eyes too.

So there’s no prizes for guessing what colour my kids’ eyes are.

BLUE.

My eldest has the bluest eyes imaginable. As a baby, everyone was struck by his eyes. Complete strangers would stop us just to tell us what lovely eyes he had.

My younger son’s eyes are a little bit darker, not quite as intensely blue as his brother’s, but still most definitely blue.

My daughter’s eyes are a shade somewhere between her brothers’. The younger kids’ eyes don’t work as well as the rest of ours, so they’ve both had glasses since they were little.

Their eyes are beautiful, just like they are. But, most importantly, their eyes do an essential job. They might need glasses, but they can see.

Linking up with The Gallery at Sticky Fingers, which this week is all about eyes, aiming to raise awareness of Million Miracles.

  1. What a brilliant cause. £30 is nothing to restore something as precious as someone’s eyesight. Hope they meet their target

    • It really is nothing, isn’t it? It’s amazing how much work some bloggers have put into raising awareness, it must really help.

  2. We’re a brown-eyed family. My daughter is convinced the song ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ is written about her. We don’t tell her otherwise 🙂

    • Bless her! I am in awe of brown eyed families – they intrigue me. Nobody in our family has brown eyes – not my mum or dad or my siblings, so they seem quite unusual to us!

  5. Lovely blue eyes! Mine are brown but my husband’s are a brilliant blue with dark, dark hair – I wanted a blue eyed baby but I’ve got two beautiful brown, one stunning hazel and one an unbelievable shade of green and I’m not trying again! Thanks so much for highlighting the Sightsavers campaign with your post! x

      Your family sound like they all have incredible eyes! Coming from such a blue-eyed bunch, I’m always quite in awe of other eye colours!
