A blind girl despised herself solely because she was blind. Except for her loving boyfriend, she despised everyone. He was always available to her. She said she would marry her boyfriend if she could only travel the world.
Someone donated a pair of eyes to her one day, and she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. “Will you marry me now that you’ve seen the world?” her boyfriend asked. ”
When she discovered that her boyfriend was also blind, she refused to marry him. Her boyfriend walked away in tears, later writing to her, “Just take care of my eyes dear.”
This is how the human brain changes in response to a change in status. Only a few people remember what life was like before, and who was always there, even in the most difficult situations.
Life Is A Blessing
Today, before you utter an unkind word,
consider someone who is unable to communicate.
Before you moan about the flavor of your food,
consider someone who is going hungry.
Before you complain about your spouse,
consider someone who is pleading with God for a companion.
Before you complain about your life today,
consider someone who went to heaven too soon.
Before you start whining about your kids,
consider someone who wishes to have children but is childless.
Before you start arguing about your dirty house, remember that someone did not clean or sweep,
Consider the people who live on the streets.
Before you complain about the distance you drive,
consider someone who walks the same distance as you.
And when you are tired of your job and complain about it,
consider the unemployed, the disabled, and those who would like to have a job.
But before you point the finger or condemn someone else, remember that none of us is without sin, and we all answer to the same creator.
And if depressing thoughts are bringing you down, put a smile on your face and thank God you’re still alive and well.
Life is a gift that should be lived, enjoyed, celebrated, and fulfilled.
