Life is a Gift

There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she was blind. She
hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for
her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then she could see
everything, including her boyfriend.

Her boyfriend asked her, "Now that you can see the world, will you marry
me?" The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind,
too, and refused to marry him.

Her boyfriend walked away in tears and later wrote a letter to her
saying, "Just take good care of my eyes, dear."

This is how the human brain changes when our status changes.

Only few remember what life was before and who's always been there, even
in the most painful situations.

Life is a gift. Today, before you think of saying 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 you complain about your children,
think of someone who desires children but they're barren.

Before you argue about your dirty house because someone didn't clean or
sweep, think of the people who are living in the streets.

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 wished they had your job.

But, before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another,
remember that not one of us is without sin, and we all answer to one

And, when depressing thoughts seem to get you down, put a smile on your
face and thank God you're alive and still around.

Life is a gift. Live it, enjoy it, celebrate it, and fulfill it!
