    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.
