Life Is A Gift

I receive a lot of none sense email every day, such as spam, chain letter and stuff that I don't even know existed.
But this letter that I received from an old client in cabanatuan deserved to be posted here.
Subject: Life Is A Gift

Please read and ponder over this piece.
Have a very nice weekend ahead.

Peace and one love.

There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she's blind. She also hated everyone, except her boyfriend who has always been there for her.

She used to say if she could only see the world, she would marry this her

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then she was able to see
everything, including her loyal boyfriend.

Her boyfriend asked her, "Now that you can see the world, can we get married now?"

The girl was so shocked to discover that her boyfriend was blind too. So she refused to marry him.

Shaken by this rejection, her boyfriend walked away in tears. He later wrote a short note to her saying,
"Please take good care of my eyes dear."

This is how humans behave when their status changes. Only few remember what life was before, and who has always been there for them even in
the most painful situations.

Life Is A Gift

Today before you think of saying an unkind word - Think of someone who can't

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 complain about your children - Think of someone who desires
children but they're barren.

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 wished they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
- Remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one Maker.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your
face and thank God you're alive and still around.

Life is a gift, Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, And fulfill it.
