Every once in a while my mother sends me something
This little story is one of them.
Hope you get it too…
All the best

There was a young 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, I would marry you."
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her.
When the bandages finally 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
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,
he 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 in life changes,
will we forget what's most important.
Only a very few remember what life was like before,
and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.
Remember that 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.
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:
alive and still here.
I PRAY THIS MOVES AROUND THE ENTIRE WORLD...
