Be Thankful.

I stumbled across this on a fellow friend's blog.
Although it sounds cliche, it is very true and meaningful.
PS: Edited for an enhanced story.

There was once a blind girl who hated everyone, even herself. But yet, she did not once hate her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her and ready to support her in anyway.

One day, she told her boyfriend, "It's a pity I'm blind. If I could only see you and the beautiful world, I would marry you."

One day, her prayers were heard, someone had donated a pair of eyes to her.

Weeks later, the bandages came off and she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

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

The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw the scars on his eyes. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She had not expected anything of that sort. The thought of looking at his eyes for the rest of her life led her to hesitate to marry him.

The utter silence was deafening when he proposed. Feeling rejected, he left in tears.

Days later, he wrote a note to her.

"Take good care of your eyes, my dear.
For before they were yours, they were mine."


Life is a Gift.

This is how the human brain often works when our status improves.
Very few will remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.


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 is desperately looking for a companion.

Before you complain about life,

- Think of someone who left for the other world all too early.

Before you whine 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 wished they had your job.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down,
- Put a smile on your face and tell yourself:
" You're alive and kicking around. "

Hope this story you have just read will prevent your head from swelling.
