>>>   A great note for all to read it will take just 37 seconds to read
>>>and change your thinking
>>>   Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One
>>>was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help
>>>the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only 
>>>other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked
>>>hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes,
>>>jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been
>>>   Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit
up, he 
>>>would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he
>>>see outside the window.
>>>   The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods 
>>>where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity
>>>color of the world outside.
>>>   The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans 
>>>played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young
>>>walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of
>>>city skyline could be seen in the distance.
>>>   As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail,
>>>man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine
>>>picturesque scene.
>>>   One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade

>>>his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with 
>>>descriptive words.
>>>   Days and weeks passed.
>>>   One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths

>>>peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital 
>>>attendants to take the body away.
>>>   As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could

>>>after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
>>>   Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his

>>>   He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.
>>>   It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have 
>>>compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful

>>>   The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see
>>>   She said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you."
>>>   Epilogue:
>>>   There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our

>>>   If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that 
>>>money can't buy.
>>>   "Today is a gift, that's why it is called the present."
>>>   The origin of this letter is unknown, but it brings good luck to
