    There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving friend. He was always there for her.. She told her friend, '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 friend.


    He asked her,'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl looked at her friend 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 friend 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, 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.
