Touch a life today

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 into 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.
“I wrote: ‘Today is a beautiful day; but I cannot see it.’”Both signs told
people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy
was blind. The second sign reminded people how fortunate they were to
have their sight. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more
effective? Morals of the Story: 1. Be thankful for what you have. 2. Be
creative and innovative-Think differently & positively. 3. When life gives
you 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.
4. Face your past without regret but handle your present with
confidence and prepare for the future without fear.5. Keep the faith and
drop the fear. 6. It’s a beautiful thing to see a person smiling, but more
beautiful if you are the reason for the smile!7. Faith is not only about
everything turning out OK but more about being OK no matter how
things turn out. My Humble Request:If you appreciate this, please

share. You may touch someone’s heart today.
