I am Blind, Please Help!

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which says "I am blind, please help. There were only a few coins in the hat, as people were not giving him much.

A man walking bye and took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them in 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 begin to fill up, as 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 person who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?
The man said "I only wrote the truth in a different way.
I wrote "today is a beautiful day, but I cannot see it".
Both sign told people that the boy was blind, but the first sign simply said the boy was blind while the second sign reminded reminded people how fortunate they were to have their sight.

We have loads to thank God, today!
