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.

Before  you 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 went  too early to heaven.

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.

And when  depressing thoughts seem to get you down – Put a smile on  your face and think: you’re alive and still  around. (Author unknown)
