True Love
The old woman sat on the antique rattan rocking chair. Her eyeglasses were perched precariously on her nose as she concentrated on her sewing chores. A gentle breeze swept the wisp of whitish hair on her temples.

Beside her sat her teenage granddaughter. She was like a fresh flower recently bloomed. Without warning she suddenly blurted out, "Lola, why is true love so difficult to find?"

The old woman with a kindly face stopped sewing and touched her granddaughter's head affectionately. After a moment, the young girl cuddled closer, resting her head on the old woman's lap.

"Listen and I will tell you why," began the grandmother.

"Many centuries ago, when the world was young, true love existed everywhere. It was available for the asking. Because of this, men and women took true love for granted, so God decided to keep true love." She stopped and smiled as she gently stroked the young girl's soft tresses. "God asked a pair of angels to keep true love."

"First, they buried true love in the ground. But men and women easily dug it out. Next, the angels took true love to the highest mountain. But again, men and women easily climbed to the top. Then the angels submerged true love in the deepest sea. Men and women swam to the bottom of the body of water and with ease retrieved true love."

"So true love is easy to find," commented the young girl. "For men and woman will dig, climb and swim."

"Yes, but finally, the angels kept true love in the hearts of men and women. Since then, people have had difficulty searching for true love. For they look everywhere except in the one place that they should keep it."
