ANECDOTAL SHARING OF
HOW WE CANNOT SEE WITH OUR EYES
"THAT LIFE IS A SACRED GIFT
TO BE SHARED WITH GIFTS
THAT CAN BE ONLY GIVEN AND NOT TAKEN..."
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
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the
bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her
He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry
The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The
sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected
...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
'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
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 whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who
walks the same distance with their feet.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile
on your face and think: you're alive and still around..
|The above life giving and taking anecdote showing how frail life
generally is....even when sacredness of life is experienced ....was shared on this
knowledge sharing PVAF website by
Mrs. Taraben Jivanbhai Mistry from Edmonton, Alberta,
Canada from an unknown original author's sharing being circulated on
internet....The meaning of "frail" is: easily led into evil; morally
weak, easily led from one's chosen course; lacking in general strength
of character or purpose; easily broken ; easily destroyed; likely to
fail or die quickly ; unusually susceptible to disease or other
infirmity ; lacking even normal strength or force; weak and small ;
lacking significant substance; tenuous and thin - as in "how frail
the barrier between civilization and the primal jungle" (Oscar Handlin)
and "the love of truth is pitifully frail" (M.R.Cohen)

London School of Economics.

his main talent was for
and he wrote more than 60
Nearly all his writings address prevailing social problems, but have a
vein of comedy which makes their stark themes more palatable. Shaw
examined education, marriage, religion, government, health care, and
“Blessed are they who have the gift
of making friends,
for it is one of God’s best gifts.
It involves many things, but above all,
the power of going out of one’s self,
and appreciating whatever is
noble and loving in another.”
