Let me Love you

Once upon a time, there was once a guy who was very much in love with this girl. This romantic guy folded 1,000 pieces of papercranes as a gift to his girl. Although, at that time he was just a small executive in his company, his future doesn't seemed too bright, they were very happy together. Until one day, his girl told him she was going to Paris and will never come back. She also told him that she cannot visualise any future for the both of them, so let's go their own ways there and then... heartbroken, the guy agreed.

When he regained his confidence, he worked hard day and night, slogging his body and mind just to make something out of himself. Finally with all these hardwork and with the help of friends, this guy had set up his own company...

"You never fail until you stop trying." he always told himself. "I must make it in life!"
One rainy day, while this guy was driving, he saw an elderly couple sharing an umbrella in the rain walking to some destination. Even with the umbrella, they were still drenched. It didn't take him long to realise those were his ex-girlfriend's parents. With a heart in getting back at them, he drove slowly beside the couple, wanting them to spot him in his luxury sedan. He wanted them to know that he wasn't the same anymore, he had his own company, car, condo, etc. He had made it in life!

Before the guy can realise, the couple was walking towards a cemetary,and he got out of his car and followed them...and he saw his ex-girlfriend, a photograph of her smiling sweetly as ever at him from her tombstone... and he saw his precious papercranes in a bottle placed beside her tomb. Her parents saw him. He walked over and asked them why this had happened. They explained, she did not leave for France at all. She was stricken ill with cancer. In her heart, she had believed that he will make it someday, but she did not want her illness to be his obstacle ... therefore she had chosen to leave him.

She had wanted her parents to put his papercranes beside her, because, if the day comes when fate brings him to her again he can take some of those back with him. The guy just wept ...the worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them but knowing you can't have them and will never see them again.
The End."

A tragic story that perhaps happens only in the movies. At the end of the day, money is money is money but love is divine. In our quest for our material wealth, take time to make time for our loved ones. There will be a time when we have only memories to cling to.
Take this weekend to show our "love" to all that are close to us.

Did I marry the right person?

Just sharing this great post from friendster, hope you'll have time to read this its worth it I swear.

"How do I know if I married the
right person?" I
noticed that there was a Large man
sitting next to her so I said, "It
Is that your husband?"

In all seriousness, she
answered "How do you know?"
Let me answer this question because
the chances are good that it's
weighing on your mind. Here's the

EVERY relationship has a cycle. In
the beginning,
you fell in love with your

You anticipated their call, wanted
their touch, and
liked their idiosyncrasies.

Falling in love with your spouse
wasn't hard. In
fact, it was a completely natural
and spontaneous experience. You didn't
to DO anything. That's why it's
called "falling" in love... because
happening TO YOU.

People in love sometimes say, "I was
swept off my
feet." Think about theimagery of
that expression. It implies that you
just standing there; doing
nothing, and then something came along
and happened

Falling in love is easy. It's a
passive and
spontaneous experience. But after a
few years of marriage, the euphoria of
fades. It's the natural cycle of
EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely,
phone calls become a bother (if they
come at all), touch is not always
(when it happens), and your
spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of
being cute,
drive you nuts.

The symptoms of this stage vary with
relationship, but if you think about
your marriage, you will notice a
difference between the initial stage
when you were in love and a much
duller or even angry subsequent
stage. At this point, you and/or your
spouse might start asking, "Did I
marry the right person?" And as you
and your
spouse reflect on theeuphoria of the
love you once had, you may begin to
desire that experience with someone

This is when marriages break down.
People blame their spouse for their
unhappiness and look outside their
marriage for fulfillment.

Extramarital fulfillment comes in
all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is
the most obvious.
But sometimes people turn to work,
church, a hobby, a friendship,
excessive TV, or abusive
substances. But the answer to this
dilemma does NOT lie outside your
It lies within it. I'm not saying
that you couldn't fall in love with
else. You could. And TEMPORARILY
you'd feel better. But you'd be in the
same situation a few years later.
Because (listen carefully to this):
Key To Succeeding In Marriage Is Not
Finding The Right Person; It's
Learning To Love The Person You

SUSTAINING love is not a passive or
experience. It'll NEVER just happen
to you. You can't "find" LASTING love.
have to "make" it day in and day
out. That's why we have the
expression "the
labor of love."

Because it takes time, effort, and
energy. And most
importantly, it takes WISDOM.. You
have to know WHAT TO DO to make your
marriage work. Make no mistake
about it.

Love is NOT a mystery. There are
specific things you can do (with or
without your spouse) to succeed with
your marriage. Just as there are
physical laws of the universe (such as
gravity), there are also laws for
relationships. Just as the right diet
exercise program makes you
physically stronger, certain habits in
relationship WILL make your
marriage stronger. It's a direct cause
and effect.
If you know and apply the laws, the
results are predictable. .. you
can "make"
love works. Love in marriage is
indeed a "decision".. . not just a
