Welcome Sights



A Sight for Sore Eyes . . .

Meaning
A welcome visitor - someone you are glad to see.
Origin
This phrase was first recorded by Jonathan Swift, in A complete collection of genteel and ingenious conversation, 1738:      
 "The sight of you is good for sore eyes."


Sweets ready to eat -- 
always a welcome sight


DIY Guy folding laundry -- definitely a welcome sight!


Seeing your spouse for the first time in 50 days --
 -- the best sight for sore eyes!

 "The sight of you is good for sore eyes."

Derek and Emily will get to see each 
other on Sunday after 50 days of being 
apart from one another.
Have fun you two!
