Saving the best for last?

Today I was speaking to someone and there was a funny problem. Let us not discuss the problem; nevertheless, I want to talk of a story which I had read long time back when I was a teenager.

Okay, the story goes like this. One day a man gets his girlfriend a present, it was a set of pretty satin undergarments and an expensive perfume. But as soon as the she got the gift, she packed it up and put it in the closet to use later – on a perfect and special occasion.
Days passed by, and one day the woman died an untimely death. Just as the man was going thru her things, he found the gift box that he had once gave her – it still had those things which she liked but could never use just because she was waiting for the right time.

I learnt from that story.

Quite simple but a beautiful story with a deep meaning.It teaches you to treasure each & every moment of life because it is "special".
