Only time will value love

Value: Love

Many years ago all feelings and emotions gathered on a coastal island, to spend their vacation. Each one of them was having a jolly good time, when suddenly one day there was weather announcement, a warning of an approaching storm, and so all had to leave the island as soon as possible.
This caused considerable panic among them, as all of them rushed to their boats; strangely enough only Love did not wish to be hurried. There was so much to do, so by the time Love finished its work, realized that it was time to leave, there were no boats left to carry Love; nevertheless Love looked around with Hope.

As Prosperity was passing by in its classy boat, Love requested , “Please, take me in your boat”, but Prosperity replied, “My boat is full of gold and other precious possessions, there is no place for you”.
Then Vanity came in a lovely boat, again Love asked, “Vanity, could you take me in your boat? Please, help me”. Vanity said, “No, your feet are muddy, and I don‘t want my boat get dirty”.

Sometime later, as Sorrow was passing by , Love called out for help. But Sorrow answered, “I am so sad, I want to be by myself”.
A little later, Happiness came along, Love asked for help, but Happiness was too happy, it was hardly concerned about anyone.

When everyone had reached safety of the shore, Love got off the boat and bumped into Knowledge. Love asked, “Knowledge, do you know who helped me when everyone else turned away”? Knowledge smiled: “That was Time, because only Time knows your true value and what you are capable of. Only you, dear Love can bring peace and happiness”.

Learning

The message of this story is that when we are prosperous, we underrate Love. When we feel important, we do not appreciate love. And even in happiness and sorrow we overlook love. Only with time we realize the true value of love. Why wait and not cherish and share Love every day in your life.
