Love Story #1: Untiring Love


Allow me to share some of my favorite love stories, which I have saved in my pc. Forgive me that I am not sure of who the original authors are, as these were just forwarded to me by friends. I hope the stories touch your lives, as they did to me. 

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 

This is a true story that happened in Japan. 

In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan tears open the wall. 

Japan houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. 

When tearing the walls, the man found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet. He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 10 years ago when the house was first built. 

What happened? 

The lizard has survived in such position for 10 years! In a dark wall partition for 10 years without moving, it is impossible and mind boggling. 

Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 10 years without moving a single step – since its foot was nailed! 

So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what and how it has been eating. Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard with food in its mouth. 

Ahh! He was stunned and touched deeply. For the lizard that was struck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 10 years… Such love, such a beautiful love! Such love happened even with this tiny creature … What can love do? It can do wonders! Love can do miracles! Imagine? The other lizard has been doing that untiringly for 10 years, without giving up hope on its partner. 

Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can’t. 

I was touched when I read this story and started wondering about relationships between family members, friends, lovers, brothers, sisters. 

As information and communication technology advances, our access to information becomes faster and faster. But the distance between human beings … is it getting closer as well?

    At first I read lizard and I thought, “a lizard love story?”, but when I read further, it was a really great story. Short, but it delivers a strong message: only love can make wonderful things happen. 🙂
