We must learn to be more appreciative than complaining and comparing. Correct?
Read on.........and u be the judge for the moral of the story..........
fine day, an old couple around the age of 70, walks into a lawyer's
office. Apparently, they are there to file a divorce. Lawyer was very
puzzled, after having a chat with them, he got their story....
couple had been quarreling all their 40 over yrs of marriage, nothing
ever seems to go right. They hang on coz of their children, afraid that
it might affect their up-bringing. Now, all their children have already
grown up, have their own family, there's nothing else the old couple
have to worry about, all they wanted is to lead their own life free
from all these years of unhappiness from their marriage, so both agree
on a divorce....
Lawyer was having a hard time trying to get
the papers done, because he felt that after 40 years of marriage at the
age of 70, he couldn't understand why the old couple would still wants
a divorce...while they were signing the papers, the wife told the
husband.."I really love u, but i really can't carry on anymore, I'm
sorry.." "its o.k, i understand.." said the husband. Looking at this,
the lawyer suggested a dinner together, just 3 of them, wife thought,
why not, since they r still gonna be frends.. At the dining table,
there was a silence of awkwardness. The first dish was roasted chicken,
immediately, the old man took the drumstick for the old lady.. "take
this, its your favourite.." lookin at this, the lawyer thought maybe
there's still a chance, but the wife was frowning when she answer.."
This is always the problem, u always think so highly of yourself, never
thought about how i feel, don't u know that i hate drumsticks?" Little
did she know that, over the years, the husband has been trying all ways
to please her, little did she know that drumstick was the husband's
favorite. Little did he know that she never thought he understand her
at all, little did he know that she hates drummsticks even though all
he wants is the best for her. That night, both of them couldn't sleep,
toss and turn, toss and turn. After hours, the old man couldn't take it
anymore, he knows that he still loves her, and he can't carry on life
without her, he wants her back, he wants to tell her, he is sorry, he
wanted to tell her "i love u"...
He picks up the phone,
started dialing her number....ringing never stops.. he never stops
dialing. On the other side, she was sad, she couldn't understand how
come after all these years, he still doesn't understand her at all. she
loves him a lot, but she just can't take it anymore... phone's ringing,
she refuses to answer, knowing that its him..."what's the point of
talking now that its over...i have ask for it and now i wanna keep it
this way, if not i will lose face.."she thought...still ringing...she
has decided to pull out the cord... Little did she remember, he has
The next day, she received news that he had
passed away...she rushed down to his apartment, saw his body, lying on
the couch still holding on to the phone...he had a heart attack when he
was still trying to get thru' her phone line....
As sad as she
could be...she will have to clear his belongings...when she was looking
through the drawers, she saw this insurance policy, dated from the day
they got married, beneficiary of cause its her...together in that file,
there's this note... "To my dearest wife, by the time u r reading this,
i'm sure i'm no longer around, I bought this policy for u. thou the
amount is only $100k, i hope it will be able to help me continue my
promise that i have made when we got married. I might not be around
anymore, i want this amount of money to continue taking care of u, just
like the way i will if i could have live longer. I want u to know i
will always be around, by your side...i love u"
Tears flowed like river......
When u love someone, let them know...
You never know what will happen the next min....
Learn to build a life together...
Learn to love each other.......... for who they are..not what they are...
