She told her
"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
saw that he was blind.
The sight of his closed eyelids shocked
her. She hadn't expected that.
The thought of
looking at him the
rest of her life led
her to refuse to
marry him.
Her boyfriend left her 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
Only a very few remember
what life was like before, and
who was always by their
side in the most painful
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.
Today before you
complain about life –
Think of someone
who went too early
to heaven.
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 thank GOD you're
alive and still around.
don’t complain about
your JOB as a TEACHER
accept the challenges!
