Eyes of the girl

~~~This should make a person do some thinking.~~~

> 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.

> 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 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: HEY, I'm still alive and still
> around.
