Happy Valentines everyone! ♥
It’s a very lovely day today and for those who are on the other side of the world, happy pre-valentines day!
I have always loved this celebration even though I am still single. Haha, see my other valentines post here? Look through my other same day posts for the last years and you’ll realize how long I have been single! Anyway, I am not the bitter type because I believe in the idea of love and its realities . I know it’s not plain and simple but I am hopeful and I believe that I am just an inch closer to finding the right one. So for this very day, I will leave a short story from my recent favorite book ‘Lullabies’ by Lang Leav because if its your time to find true love, its truly your time. And you know what they usually say about waiting, that very abused saying, that cliche — ‘Patience is always a virtue’.
Well, I believe it has been my greatest strength! Like I have been waiting all life! Sounds like Rihanna’s song right? So here it is…
Patience and Love agreed to meet at a set time and place; beneath the twenty-third tree in the olive orchard. Patience arrived promptly and waited. She checked her watch every so often but still, there was no sign of Love.
Was it the twenty-third tree or the fifty-sixth? She wondered and decided to check, just in case. As she made her way over to the fifty-sixth tree, Love arrived at twenty-three, where Patience was noticeably absent.
Love waited and waited before deciding he must have the wrong tree and perhaps it was another where they were supposed to meet.
Meanwhile, Patience had arrived at the fifty-sixth tree, where Love was still nowhere to be seen.
Both begin to drift aimlessly around the olive orchard, almost meeting but never do.
Finally, Patience, who was feeling lost and resigned, found herself beneath the same tree where she began. She stood there for barely a minute when there was a tap on her shoulder.
It was Love.
“Where are you?” She asked. “I have been searching all my life.”
“Stop looking for me,” Love replied, “and I will find you.”
Again, Happy Heart’s Day! ♥♥♥
