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.' What he had written was:
Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing? Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people 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.
Think differently and positively.
Invite the people towards good with wisdom.
Live life with no excuse and love with no regrets.
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.
Don't believe your doubts and doubt your beliefs.
Life is a mystery to solve not a problem to resolve.

The social worker, Karen, traced, checked and got in touch with the nursing home. Upon his request, Karen sought the help of THKMS’s Volunteer Management’s Manager, Patrick. Patrick, in turn called me informing me of this. Why not, I thought. We arranged it to be on today, 3pm.
Poor people want to be rich and rich are never satisfied with what they have.
Peng Shuilin is 78cms high. He was born in Hunan Province, China.In 1995, in Shenzhen, a freight truck sliced his body in half.
His lower body and legs were beyond repair.
Surgeons sewed up his torso.Peng Shuilin, 37, spent nearly two years in hospital in Shenzhen, southern China, undergoing a series of operations to re-route nearly every major organ or system inside his body.
Peng kept exercising his arms, building up strength, washing his face and brushing his teeth.
He survived against all odds.
Now Peng Shuilin has astounded doctors by learning to walk again after a decade.
Considering Peng’s plight, doctors at the China Rehabilitation Research Centre in Beijing devised an ingenious way to allow him to walk on his own, creating a sophisticated egg cup-like casing to hold his body, with two bionic legs attached.
It took careful consideration, skilled measurement and technical expertise.
Peng has been walking the corridors of Beijing Rehabilitation Centrewith the aid of his specially adapted legs and a resized walking frame.
RGO is a recipicating gait orthosis, attached to a prosthetic socket bucket. There is a cable attached to both legs so when one goes forward, the other goes backwards.
Rock to the side, add a bit of a twist and the leg without the weight on it advances, while the other one stays still, giving a highly inefficient way of ambulation.
Oh so satisfying to ‘walk’ again after ten years with half a body!
Hospital vice-president Lin Liu said: “We’ve just given him a checkup; he is fitter than most men his age.
“Peng Shuilin has opened his own bargain supermarket, called the Half Man-Half Price Store.
The inspirational 37-year-old has become a businessmanand is used as a role model for other amputees.At just 2ft 7ins tall, he moves around in a wheelchair giving lectures on recovery from disability.
His attitude is amazing, he doesn’t complain.”He had good care, but his secret is cheerfulness. Nothing ever gets him down.”
You have a whole body. You have feet.
Now you have met a man who has no feet.
His life is a feat of endurance, a triumph of the human spirit in overcoming extreme adversity.
Next time you want to complain about something trivial, don’t.
Remember Peng ShuiLin instead.
就算是 believe 中间也藏了一个 lie
If you give up when it's winter,
you will miss the promise of your spring,
the beauty of your summer,
and fulfillment of your fall.
Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest.
Don't judge life by one difficult season.
