My mother presented me with a bank savings account book
on the eve of my wedding. There had $1000.00 in it. My mother smiled and said,
‘You both are going to deposit some money in it from time to time,
when something is worth of memory. Besides the money,
you both learn that there will have the unlimited happiness as you both are old !’ My husband deposited $500.00 twice later on.
Once, he was promoted at work.
Another time, I got home after a very successful operation.
I felt absolutely warmest at the bottom of my heart.
After all, my good health was the priority of his greatest happiness.
We started fighting a few years later. My mother said to me,
‘First of all, you both spend all the money from your account
before the next move !’
When we were going for a divorce ! I looked into the bank book. I thought back the source of the money.
Tears welled up in my eyes because it did accumulated lots of happiness inside. I gave it to him that night.
I said, ‘Hurry up to spend all the money before we divorce !’ He handed the bank book to me with $1000.00 extra more in it next day. ‘This is the first time for me to realize that I’m still very much in love with you,
I deposited $1000.00, so.’ he said.
We were reconciled since then.
Today is our 57th wedding anniversary. And we still deposit the money into our account whenever there is something worthy of memory even now. We know we will celebrate our every wedding anniversary until the end of the rainbow…….
A harmonious relationship is built on the true love.
Keeping a harmonious relationship to survive is maintained on the true love also.
Just like planting the flowers, we have to supply the quality of time, water,
nutrient and love. It will be splendid and blossomy, then.
