Love is priceless!

Entire world is moving towards a mechanical life, having little or no time to realize or sweetness in life, in love.. There are people who truly are different from the majority and do the best they can. This is dedicated to them and for the rest, I hope that we all realize the importance of not allocating time for love, life when all other things are done. I hope, we all prioritize and understand for what we are running!

But above all, when we expect someone to understand us, we should first start by trying to understand others..

Here it is:


A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted
a sign advertising the 4 pups and set about nailing it to a post on the
edge of his yard.

As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt
a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy. "Mister,"
he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."

"Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat of the
back of his neck, these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good
deal of money."
The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching
deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the
farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"
"Sure," said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. "Here! Dolly!" he called.

Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur.

The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight.

As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring
inside the doghouse. Slowly another little ball appeared, this one
noticeably smaller , Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward
manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others,doing its best to
catch up..! ..

"I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt. The
farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't
want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these
other dogs would."

With that the little boy stepped back from the fence,
reached down and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so
he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching
itself to a specially made shoe. Looking back up at the farmer, he sai d, "You
see sir, I don't run too well myself, and he will need someone who
understands." With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the
little pup. Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy -
" How much?" asked the little boy.

"No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no charge
for love."

The world is full of people who need someone who

I have read this piece of touching narration before. It is a nice one indeed. But where is Love here? Pardon me, but I would like to take the liberty to call this compassion. Of course, compassion is the root cause for loving someone. But I do agree with your initial comments that life has become so mechanical that people have left compassion long behind, humanity is scarce and professionalism is at its peak.
