She's been living with one eye for as long as she can remember. She only knew how it felt to see this world with two normal eyes, when she was still much too young to understand what she was seeing. At the age of two, she was diagnosed with a fatal eye illness, which she had been having since she was born, but no one found out then, because the symptoms were not so clear. She had a surgery, only to remove her pain, as it was already too late to cure her illness.

So there she goes, living her whole life with one eye, which can only see shadows without glasses. But she never complained, she felt just like other people, she could do anything the others could. At times, she even forgot she only saw with one eye.

After graduating from college, she started to have a dream to dedicate her life for the poor, the sick, the forgotten. She volunteered in some social organizations, transit houses, orphanages events, etc. She was able to help the disabled, didn’t even remember that actually she herself was also disabled. But later, she had to bury her dream. Her family needed her to work in a good company for living. Besides, her mom couldn't bear being far from her and worrying where she might be all the time. She chose to live for her family’s happiness and not her own.

One day, her mom told her something she had never known before. Because of what happened to her, the late diagnosis which had caused the loss of sight of her right eye forever, every time her mom saw babies with similar symptoms, she told their parents to see a doctor as soon as possible. And there was this occasion, a baby was diagnosed with the same illness, and because of the early warning from her mom, this baby was cured, and now lives with two beautiful normal eyes.

That night she cried in her room. She wasn’t sad, she wasn’t regretting anything, she wasn’t complaining. She was praying and thanking God, for her sacrifices had saved another child, for she was able to help others even since she was still a little kid. She had to bury her dream of dedicating her life for the needy, but then she found out that her whole life had always been a dedication for other people, and she didn’t even realize it all this time. If she could go back to the past and change things, she wouldn’t change anything. She thanked God for trusting her since she was a kid, for giving her the privilege to help others, for using her to write His love letter to the world, for giving the everlasting happiness in her heart, through love and sacrifices to other people.

Based on true story.

i hope this story can inspire us to feel happy when we don't get what we want, or when we have to sacrifice to make other people happy. The bigger sacrifices we give, the bigger happiness we'll get.
and to thank God for everything He has given for us, because everything He gives is beautiful. we only haven't seen it yet sometimes :)

love,
Melia

hello melia!

that's a wonderful story you shared.

Sometimes, we realized how blessed we are by seeing less fortunate people, but then we will be happier if we become blessings to other people who needed our utmost care and kindness.

Bless your soul.

take care.

i believe we can always be a blessing to others, we can always help people, no matter who we are, what we have or what we don't have. there are no big things or small things in helping people, as long as we do it with a sincere heart, we can get the true happiness :)
