The Blind Girl


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 would 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..
