A Story to live by -A Blind Girl

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'

One day,someone donated a pair of eyes to her.

When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything,

including her boyfriend..

He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?'

The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind.

The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her.

She hadn't expected that.

The thought of looking at them the rest of her life

led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her

saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear,

for before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes.

Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who

was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift

Today before you say an unkind word

Think of someone who can't speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food

Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Beforeyou complain about your husband or wife

Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

Today before you complain about life

Think of someone who died too early on this earth.

Beforeyou complain about your children

Think of someone who desires children

but they're barren...

Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep

Think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive

Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet..

And when you are tired and complain about your job

Think of the unemployed, the disabled,

and those who wish they had your job..

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another

Remember that not one of us is without sin.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down

Put a smile on your face and think:

you're alive and still around.

Too beautiful not to share.......
