Default Count you blessings every day



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

unfortunately 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, wife or significant other ,
Think of someone who's crying out 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.


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..

==========================

I HOPE

THIS MOVES AROUND

THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.

Thanks for the reminder. It's easy to forget just how good most of us really have it, especially with added stress this time of year.
