Sucker For Sentiment

I'm feeling a little sentimental this week.....I wonder why????

Thought I'd share this with you:

A woman came out of her house and saw three old men with white beards sitting in her front yard. She didn't recognize them. She said,

"I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."
"Is the man of the house home?" they asked.
"No," she replied. "He is out."
"Then we cannot come in," they answered.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.

"Go tell them I am home and invite them in." he said.
The woman went out and invited them in.

"We do not go into a home together," they replied
"Why is that?" she asked.

One of the old men explained.

"His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and pointing to another, "He is Success and I am Love."
Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. The husband was overjoyed!

"How nice!" the husband said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our house with Wealth!"
His wife disagreed.

"My dear, why don't we invite Success?"

Their daughter-in-law was listening from another corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion.

"Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with Love."

"Let us heed our daughter-in-laws advice," said the husband to his wife. "Go out and invite Love to be our guest."

The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."

Love got up and started walking to the house. The other two also got up and followed him. Surprised the lady asked Wealth and Success,

"I only invited Love. Why are you coming in?"

The old men replied together,

"If you had invited Wealth or Success, we would have stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever he goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love there is also Wealth and Success."

I wish for you all Love, Wealth and Success.

Invite "Wealth" in the house.

With Wealth, you DON'T NEED "Success", and women will "LOVE YOUR BRAINS OUT" !!!

It's simple common sense, really, LOL !!

And success could infer wealth and love. :)

Good luck this weekend!

I would say love does not bring wealth nor success.

Nicely put, but all that ever asks to come into my house are wet, smelly dogs.

I welcome them with love though...
