Lessons for life.......

Lessons for life

 
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 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 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 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 changes.
Only a very few remember what life was like before and who was
always by their side in the most painful situations.

I have read that one before and can never make up mind who I am more sorry for..The lovley man who gave up his eyes...or the girl who could not accept his looks once she could actually see him....They both have to live with the consequences.....Isn't this just like life today. People never seem to be contended with what they have and looking for more and more...What a world....
Let us be grateful at least for all we have.   Love  Sybil xx
