"Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it"

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said : "I am blind, please help". There were only a few coins in the hat. A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them in the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognised his footsteps and asked, "Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?" The man said,

"I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way." What he had written was,

"Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it"

Dear friends,
"Today is a beautiful day but i cant see it" a short sentences which have a very deep meaning.I do agree that some people are not grateful for what they have and always yearn for more things.People seldom appreciate things which they already have and when they lost it, then only they will ask for it. For the above story, that guy is very bright indeed.He helped the boy by bringing out the positive way of thinking rather than a negative way of thinking.That way, people who are walking by would be grateful enough that they have the opportunity to see the world compared to the little boy who could not see a thing.I do have my own story which I want to shared with all of you.There is one boy, who always think that he is the most unluckiest person in this whole world.He always blames god and others for all the bad things which happen to him.To see his friends running around and playing till their heart content is a pain for him.He could never do it because of his condition.One day on his way back, he saw a little girl walking down the road.She was holding a stick and was trying to cross the road.At that time,he knows that the girl is blind.He quickly help the girl to cross the road.The girl thanked him and walk away continuing her journey.That incident made him thinking how lucky he is to be able to see the sky, the mountain and the color of the rainbow.He is ashamed of himself for all the bad thought he had before this.He quickly get home and hug his parents thanking them for all the things that they had done for him.This is a story of a handicapped boy who lost his left leg due to accidents.He wears an artificial leg to school and to do his daily chores.A story of my best friend and a story which i hold dear in my life.Last but not least, we have to appreciate everything that we have.We may not have everything but at least we have something....Have a nice day ^_^
