10:15 am
happens to be blind. >> at 15 she lost her sight due to a rare eye disease, but she didn't let her blindness stop her from empowering others to live beyond their limits. >> we'll meet her in a moment. first, here's her story. >> when i was a little girl, i could see just fine. but when i entered middle school, things began to change. i became a little more clumsy. my math grades began to plummet. i didn't realize it was because i couldn't see the numbers on the chalkboard. one night i was walking with my mom to a friend's upstairs apartment. i was tripping up those stairs. and my mom stopped and asked, jennifer, can you not see the stairs? and my response was just as surprised. "what do you mean, mom?" "you can't see the stairs?" within a few days i was diagnosed with a disease called retinitis. it's a disease in both of my
10:16 am
retinas and caused them to deteriorate. and that meant the prognosis was total blindness. i remember driving home from that eye hospital and feeling my fingertips and wondering if i was going to have to read braille and how i would finish high school. what started as legal blindness quickly became darker and darker until over a period of years all the light i once saw was replaced with darkness. but within the loss, i have received so much. blindness has introduced me to myself. i've learned that i can't change blindness, but i can change my perspective. and when my eyes are grateful, i really can see goodness and grace. i've learned that blindness does not define me. but it has truly refined me, and it still does. >> how much do we love jennifer? >> i love that when my eyes are grateful. what a lovely way to put it. >> jennifer welcome. how are you? >> thank you. i love being here. thank you. >> you're spreading your message
10:17 am
across the country, and you do write about it in your new book called "invisible: how you feel is not who you are." what a beautiful title, too, for that book. >> don't women feel invisible? >> the older we get, too, especially. >> yeah. you don't have to be blind to not be able to see who you are. >> 15 when you were first diagnosed, that's a tough time for young girls anyway, you know? >> yeah. >> was there a time when you were sort of mad at the world, mad at god because of it, it just seemed so unfair? >> you know, i think i had such a forward perspective, thanks to just my parents' influence and the influence of my faith that -- and my first response was unfair or why me or being mad, it was, okay. here we go. now what are we going to do that? and i'm very grateful. it doesn't mean that people who do get frustrated, there's something wrong with them. >> i know you were saying early on that you knew it was going to get darker and darker, you were afraid of the dark. you were afraid of what you
10:18 am
wre weren't going to be able to see, but that all changed. will you describe how that changed? >> i think for me, you know, i had always had faith. and when blindness came into my life, suddenly it became this classroom, this testing place for me to discover that everything i really had believed was true. and so there is a light that comes from believing in something bigger than yourself that's beyond yourself that's more eternal. and that kind of light really, because of my rationship with god, gave me a light in that darkness, a reason to have hope. and so that really what could have been a loss, people would dread, really your honor escush life i've dreamed of. >> you had to become dependent, really, right? >> yeah. and that's a good thing. people are healthier when they depend on each other. >> uh-huh. >> i'm just looking at you. and i'm in awe of you. i am. i really am. you just have a maturity and just a radiance about you that most seeing people, many seeing
10:19 am
people, don't come near in life. >> go ahead. i was going to say, you're beautiful, you have a beautiful husband, you have beautiful children. >> she calls him her boyfriend. >> i like that. my favorite part. >> for 30 years. >> you're both here. finding each other, having a family, did you think that was going to be in the cards for you? >> no. no, i honestly thought, who's going to want to marry a blind woman, right? because i thought, you know, that my husband-to-be, if i got one, would want someone who could support him and help and cook and drive carpools. he's the one who had to iron my clothes. >> he put you together beautifully today, i've got to tell you. excellent taste, boyfriend. >> he's taken. but here's the thing. the reason i wrote "invisible" is because just like i felt when i thought, am i going to get a husband or are boys going to want to date me, women feel that way for altogether different reasons. but it's universal as women that we deal with that kind of
10:20 am
insecurity and lack of confidence. >> so what advice, because there are women, obviously, who have insecurities and they worry about things like that. what advice does your book help them with? >> insecurity support based on something that's out there or the way that other woman looks or how successful that other woman that you're competing against might be. insecurity is based on a belief about yourself. it's based on this idea that i lack something. and so what i help the reader understand in "invisible" is you lack nothing. and here's why. you l-a-c-k. you are loved. you are accepted. you are complete and you are known. even if no one else ever communicates that to you. that's who you are. >> i love when you say blindness doesn't define me. it has refined me. >> and it has, hasn't it? >> we love you! >> you come back just anytime. all right? god bless. >> thank you, jennifer. >> thank you. >> a daughter hears her late mother's voice. >> and that's coming up right after this. hi dad.

of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver,

her mother, eddie ruth, and it was the rosiest ever. >> you got it. >> my dear sweet mother passed away five years ago. she was known for growing the most beautiful red roses. when she went to heaven, we made sure that some of her glorious spring roses were gathered and displayed at her funeral. mom was my best friend, and i miss her terribly. especially our daily chats about recipes, family, our pets and, of course, her roses. still filled with grief just a couple weeks after her service, a friend and i were driving on a street we don't normally travel. all of a sudden, he shouted out, "did you see those roses?" there was no traffic. so he quickly stopped the car and backed up so i could see the side street overflowing with magnificent red rosebushes. instantly, as the car moves backwards, we heard mom's voice

from the back seat. >> grandma was the sweetest, kindest little old lady. >> i was speechless. while my friend said, "that sounds like your mother." we looked at each other in complete shock. he slammed on the brakes. we jumped out of the car and began digging through bags in the back. then i remembered when mom went into hospice, i had decided to capture some of her stories on a small digital voice recorder. i had put that recorder in a side pocket of my briefcase, and somehow it had turned itself on and began playing. here's what's amazing. that recorder had been an annoyance to me. to turn it on, you had to hold the power button down for about four seconds. then push a recessed play button with your fingernail. yet the instant we stopped to see the roses was the very moment my mother's voice filled the car. >> grandma was the sweetest,
