Something Important to share

I found this on Facebook and it is so astounding to me I thought it important enough to share with you…It is called Blind~~Author unknown

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 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 or is getting their food from a dumpster.

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 from disease, an accident, was killed or just ended it all.

Before whining about the distance you drive, Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet or rides a bicycle.

And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, (such as myself) and those who wish they had your job or had the ability to work.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around, be grateful.

And while I am sharing here is another one on FB worth thinking about and I also have posted my response. 
            When people walk away from you…Let them go…
Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn’t mean that they are “bad” people.
            It just means that part of Your story is over.

Our lives are like reading a book. Every book is written in chapters. You finish one chapter and start reading the next new chapter. Sometimes we need a big box of tissue to get through some of the hardest chapters.
     Lisa Nichols once said similar to this ...
     I am not ending a relationship; I am just finishing  a chapter. 

I know that is such a hard thing to think about and remember; I struggle with it at times myself. But when we learn to change our thoughts, our emotions will change also and the old will no longer have a hold on us. We begin the process of learning how to let go.

 That is what I wanted to share today, I know the holiday season is upon us. For some it is a very difficult time. So be gracious in your thoughts and words. Remember there are those who are alone and a little companionship goes a very long way.

May this season bring you love and peace in your lives and in your hearts.

Wishing you peace, love and joy,
