Speechless

I had a visitor yesterday, a hearing impaired teenaged girl. I was showing her around the house and finally my small puja cupboard. She liked the way things were arranged and was smiling all the way. She touched the tiny bells and told me in sign language "You must be hearing the sound of these bells". I just did not know how to react, I was almost on the verge of tears. I realised how often we take things for granted. Hearing the sound of bells ringing is a petty thing for me but not for her. It is truly said that a person who has lost something will realise the value of that even more. I now realise how lucky I am to be a normal person. Somehow, I am not able to get over this incident at all.

Yes..you are absolutely right..Nothing should be taken for granted. We should thank god for giving us so much...in life.

After reading this .......i went through deeper thoughts.
My Parents used to tell me pray to god
& What i used to pray to god is asking him to get me a good job, nice scores in my exams,..........blabla.
Very rarely do me thank god for every thing that he has given us.
It was an eye opener & made me realize how fortunate i am !!!!!

THANK YOU GOD
