The Rose

The Rose

James was a highly respected officer in the army. In his spare
time, he liked to surf the net and talk to new people online.

He had been talking to a woman for some time now and had a sort
of internet relationship with her. He had actually fallen in
love with her. The only problem was that any time he asked her
about sending a picture her response was "if you love me this
much then what I look like doesn't matter."

So he agreed and let it go.

Later, even without seeing her but only knowing her personality
and how loving and caring she was, he asked her to marry him, to
which she answered yes. They decided to meet at a train station
for the first time and she told him that she would be wearing a
red rose so that he would know who she was.

Well the time came and James stood there in his full officers
uniform waiting ever so anxiously for her to come off of the

Then he looked over to see a tall blonde with a short cut dress,
nice legs, long hair waving back and forth in the wind and the
most beautiful eyes he had ever seen. He couldn't believe his
eyes. . .

. . .then from behind her appeared an older heavyset woman
wearing a red rose.

As the beautiful woman walked by she asked, "Goin my way
soldier?" but James, as if he didn't even hear her, just turned
around standing at attention with tears of joy in his eyes and
looking at the older woman and said,

"It's a pleasure to finally meet you," to which the older lady
said, "I don't know why but that lady that just walked by told me
to wear this and if you came to me to tell you to meet her in
the restaurant across the street."

That is the way most of our lives are. The decisions we make
can change our lives. If you make the wrong choice you could
end up empty-handed but choosing the right way, even though it
may be the harder way, will work out always in the end.

We all have at least two choices to make,
the right one and the wrong one.

Which one will you make?
