The Other Side Of The River



By Anonymous

It was a joke about a man on the riverbank asking a
woman on the opposite bank how to get to the other side.
She replied that he was already on the other side.

"Life and thruth is often a matter of perspective and viewpoint."

I thought about that issue for a good part of the day.
It was short and somewhat funny but extremely profound.

Do you realize how many people are trying to get to the very
side that you are already on while you are trying to get somewhere else?

Do you know how many people wish they had a good husband or wife like you do?

Do you realize how many couples wish they had children like you do?

Do you know how many suffering people wish they had a pain-free body like you do?

Do you know how many people wish they had just enough money to pay their basic bills like you do?

Do you realize how many people wish they could get to the weight that you are already at?

Do you realize how many people wish they had a job like you do?

Do you realize how many people wish they could see like you can?

...could hear like you can?

...could walk like you can?

I, like most people reading this, wish for many things.I have alot of dreams and visions.

"Perspective" really made me think and realize that with so many of the rivers of life,

I'm already on the"other" side.

So are you.
