A very poor man lived with his wife. One day, his wife, who had very long hair, asked him to buy her a comb for her hair. The man felt very sorry but said no. He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken. She did not insist on her request.
The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his old watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife. He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife. He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short haircut. She had sold her hair and was holding a new watch band.
Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.
At the very end of it all, when we leave the classroom of our lives and return to Spirit, it will matter not how much money we had, but how rich we were in loving.
