Food For Thought


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.
