Inspiration: Never take 'love' for granted

A very poor man lived with his wife. One day, his wife who had very long hair asked him to buy her pomade for her hair to grow well and make it well-groomed, but the man felt very sorry and said no to her request.
He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch which he had just broken.
She did not insist on her request.
The man went to work and on his return, he passed by a watch shop. He sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife but, upon reaching home with the comb in his hand and ready to give it to his wife, he saw a big surprise.
His wife had cut her hair very short and sold it to buy a new watch band for her husband...
Tears begin to flow simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.
To love is nothing, to be loved is something but to love and be loved by the one you love is everything. Never take love for granted.
