Today I read about a girl. A girl who could see the world no more. A girl who was deprived of all the colours and brightness at the age of 8. A girl could have easily given up. But still preferred to achieve in life. Imagine yourself in her place. You will realise that you are indeed blessed !
This girl cant see herself. She doesn’t know how she looks. How tall he is. How fat she is. But she has no complaints. She is just Grateful.
What about us?!
Each time we look at ourselves in the mirror, we never thank for what we have. We are keen on finding out what we dont have and start complaining.
Why do we complain when we have a lot more than what others have?
We have everything.
Eyes to see the world. To enjoy the colour and brightness.
Nose to smell the wonderful scents of the world.
Ears to hear the calm sounds of nature.
Tongue with which we taste and speak our ideas out.
Hands and Legs that help us do everything.
Still, we are not satisfied. What is this, if not GREED !?
This girl now is on cloud 9. When a normal girl takes one month to study the Braille Script, she took a mere 4 days. She utilised all her vacations for learning new things. Now she knows typewriting and how to operate a computer with the help of which she reads. She handles English , Hindi and Malayalam well and is now all set to learn French and Braille Chess ! The most recent achievement being complete A+’s in her 10th Boards without any help of Tuitions or without attending special schools !
Looking back a year and a half or so , when I was so happy to get the complete A+’s for which I worked hard. But is it the same as this girl? Was mine worth? It does make a difference. I – who have everything and She – who has something. Thats the difference. Did I work so hard?! I knew the answer. I did work hard but not hard enough.
This girl who thinks that her life is so normal when she know that there WAS a tumour which cost her , her eyesight. She is the one who can rightfully be called COURAGEOUS and BRAVE. Its not easy to live your life like nothing has happened. Its not easy when you know that your dear ones are in pain at the mere sight of your condition. I salute you. You are everything that I am not.
Do your best. Let god carry on from there. – She says
To all people out there. Make some time to look back at your life. You will realise that you are
lucky but blessed !
You have parents to provide the best strength and comforts in life. They promise you a secure life.
When there are millions of children around you who have no idea about what the future holds for them. Its dark. And they have to make it Alone.
You are being educated and given healthy food.
While there are children who dream of going to school but has to work in dark tunnels watching their childhood disappear in front of them for a PIECE OF BREAD ! They sacrifice everything to feed their family !
Blessings ! They are countless !
Each one of us is blessed !
Its just that we never realize it ! Are we thankful enough ?!
Accept the fact : We are blessed !
Blessed are the blind, for they know not enough to ask why.
Blessed are the forgetful: for they get the better even of their blunders.
Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.
Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.
Blessed are those who give without remembering and take without forgetting.
Blessed be God that Thou hast filled the soul of Thy servant with joy and peace in believing.
