I got this email from an officemate, I was touched by it and want to share it with you all!

To realize
The value of a sister
Ask someone
Who doesn't have one.

To realize
The value of ten years:
Ask a newly
Divorced couple.

To realize
The value of four years:
Ask a graduate.

To realize
The value of one year:
Ask a student who
Has failed a final exam.

To realize
The value of nine months:
Ask a mother who gave birth to a still born.

To realize
The value of one month:

Ask a mother
who has given birth to
A premature baby.

To realize
The value of one week:
Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize
The value of one hour:
Ask the lovers who are waiting to Meet.

To realize
The value of one minute:
Ask a person
Who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize
The value of one-second:
Ask a person
Who has survived an accident...

To realize
The value of one millisecond:
Ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics

Time waits for no one.

Treasure every moment you have.
You will treasure it even more when
You can share it with someone special.

To realize the value of a friend:
Lose one.

The origin of this letter is unknown,
But it brings good luck to everyone who passes it on.

Do not keep this letter.

Forward it to friends to whom you wish good luck

Peace love and prosperity to all.

How true it is!

We will never realize the value of something until we lose it!

Like a friend,

A loved one,

A family member.

Well, it also applies to material things!

We'll never know how lucky we are having the things we have unless we experience a life without it.

When I was younger, I would hear the elders say that "Hindi mo malalaman ang importansya ng pera kung hindi mo ito pinag-hirapan." (You will not know the value of money unless you worked for it).

So sometimes when I feel down and a bit worthless, I open my eyes and look around me and I realize how lucky I am having what I have.

My family, my friends, my officemates, my accomplishments, my belonging.. and so on..

Because not everyone is blessed with what I have!
