Food for thought.

This was sent to me by one of my students....

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


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.
