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 only I could 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 to heaven to early .
Before you complain about your children - Think of someone
who desires children but they‘re barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house 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 wish 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 when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a
smile on your face and think: you‘re alive and still
around.

    • I agree with what you posted.  I remember years ago when my boys were yound I had to go to the laundromat to do my laundry.  It was winter and I was grumbling about having to load the boys and all of the laundry.  While I was in the laundromat doing my laundry and the boys were outside playing in the snow....a women walked up pulling a wagon, baby and laundry in tow.  I realized then that I had absolutely nothing to grumble about.
      Blessings,
      Deb :)

    • How beautiful...

       This is why I love this site so much. We can click with a button and soak in all the wisdom from so many different people.

      Yes, there are alot of different opinions here. I look at it the way I look at my business partner through the years... If we were the same on EVERYTHING, than one of us is not needed. I love to read the different outlooks on life. All walks of life.

      Thank you for sharing... Passing happy thoughts your way!
