A Love Story
I want to share this short story about love and time, so please enjoy it and let the valuable message motivate you to give and receive love more freely.
Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all prepared their boats and left.
Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment. When the island was almost sinking, Love decided to ask for help. Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, “Richness, can you take me with you?” Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you.”
Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel, “Vanity, please help me!” “I can’t help you Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat.” Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, “Sadness, let me go with you.” “Oh…. Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!”
Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her!
Suddenly, there was a voice, “Come Love, I will take you.” It was an elder. Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the elder his name. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went his own way.
Love realized how much he owed the elder and asked Knowledge, another elder, “Who helped me?” “It was Time,” Knowledge answered. “Time?” asked Love. “But why did Time help me?” Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, “Because, only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is.”
Time is capable of solving anything. Things today may not have a solution but tomorrow you will find one!

I agree not just in romantic love.. friendship too.
We can’t rush love, but just let it take time. I guess i also learned here that we can’t force it. Pero alam mo yun, sana naman po soon.. Baka nemen..
“Because, only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is.” This part had me smiling at my screen. I know there will be a lot of times that we would lose our hope with life but love will always remind us how far we’ve come and to come not only this far.

Oh! That is such a beautiful short story! Yes, indeed, time is sometimes the only way for us to understand what it means to love and be loved. Love this!
TIME is marvelous! It can heal any kind of wounds, heartaches, etc. Without time, everything fails. That’s why in relationship, we value time over money.

What a nice story. This made me smile. I hope everybody realizes the power of love. Richness, Vanity, and whatever things, they are useless without love.
Time is capable of solving anything. Things today may not have a solution but tomorrow you will find one! – This is not just a quote, but a fact! sometimes when we have struggles in life, we don’t need to find a solution, fate has its way to reveal the solution itself… we just have to trust the process and wait.
