    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 recognized 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 told people
    that they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we
    be surprised that the second sign was more
    effective?

    Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have. Be
    creative. Be innovative. Think differently and
    positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show
    life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.

    Face your past without regret.
    Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future
    without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

    The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling…;
    And even more beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason
    behind it!!!
