Just touching base before going..

Just touching base before going out for the day.

Love, Wealth and Success

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long
white beards sitting in her front yard.. She did not
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 said.  "He's out"... "Then we cannot come in",
they
replied...  In the evening when her husband came home, she
told
him what had happened..  Go tell them I am home and invite
them in... The woman went out and invited the men in...  "We
don't go
into a house together", they replied... "Why is that?" she
wanted to
know.  One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth...
he said pointing to one of his friends...and said pointing
to another one,
"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...Her husband was
overjoyed...
"How nice", he said!!... "Since that is the case, let us
invite Wealth...
Let him come and fill our home with wealth".... His wife
disagreed...
"My dear, why don't we invite Success"?.....
Their daughter-in-law was listening  from the other corner
of
the house.. She jumped in with her own suggestion:" Would
it not be better to invite Love...Our home will be filled
with love"...
"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's 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 toward
the house..
The other 2 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 the
other two of us would've stayed out.. but since you
invited Love, wherever he goes, we go with him. .
Wherever there is Love there is also Wealth and Success.
