This Is An Interesting Story And Lesson For Men

When I started reading this post sent to me on my WhatsApp, I was first confused, but getting towards the end, it made real sense and lesson to be learnt. Please be patient enough to read it.

The metaphor used in this story Is amazing..

(To men) Please take time to ponder. ๐Ÿ˜•

(To women) Just enjoy the story. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighbouring kingdom.

The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur’s youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.

The question was:
*What do women really want?*

Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man. And to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch’s proposition to have an answer by year’s end.

He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men, and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.

Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer. But the price would be high as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but first he would have to agree to her price.

The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table, and Arthur’s closest friend. Young Arthur was horrified.

She was hunch-backed and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc.

He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life. He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden.

But Lancelot, having learnt of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur’s life. And the reservation of the Round Table. Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered.

Arthur’s question thus:
“What a woman really wants?”

She said, “A woman wants to be in charge of her own life.”

Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth, and that Arthur’s life would be spared. And so it was. The neighbouring monarch granted Arthur his freedom. And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.

The honeymoon hour approached and, Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him.

The most beautiful woman he had ever seen was sitting by the bed.

The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened. The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth become her horrible and deformed self only half the time, and be the beautiful maiden the other half.

“Which would you prefer?” She asked him. “BEAUTIFUL during the DAY… OR at NIGHT?”

Lancelot pondered the predicament.

During the day, he could have a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch!

OR,

would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day? But by night a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous moments with?

(If you are a man reading this) What would YOUR choice be?

(If you are a woman reading this) What would YOUR MAN’S choice be?

And Lancelot’s choice is given below…

BUT, please make YOUR choice first before you scroll down below!

OKAY?

Knowing the answer the witch gave to Arthur for his question, Sir Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.

Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time, because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.

Now, what is the moral to this

The moral is…

1. There is a ‘witch’ in every woman, no matter how beautiful she is. It’s how a man manages it

2. If you let a woman decide on her own she gives u d best. but if u force her with ur decisions she becomes a witch.

Hmmmm
What do you think ?

So, be careful how you treat a woman, especially your wife; so your prayers may be answered!!!

True or False???

Happy Sunday guys!!!

Video: Taking Your Disguise Off

Christiano Ronaldo disguised himself in a town-square in Madrid and no one cared about him. Even with his swags with the ball, no one cared.

But when he took his disguise off, everyone wanted a piece of him. What a world we live in.

If Jesus comes in disguise will you care about him? Treat everyone with love and respect as Jesus will do.

A Lesson In Life #inspiration

Many of us who are adults have passed through many stages in our life some of which have made an impact at one point in time, and others that we fail to notice or have become too routine in our daily lives. For far too many of us, we are constantly looking for the next stimulation that can distract us from our normal life, or, at the very least, allow us to have a few moments where we dream of a much different life.

Experience Life
Part of experiencing life and what it has to offer, is often forgotten amidst the stress and turmoil that seems to be a daily diet in modern society. And, while many us know how to push these events to the background of our consciousness, many carry these burdens wherever they go whether that is out with friends, to a movie, or to a child’s recital at school.
Some people, on the other hand, devote part of their time to changing a little piece of life for the better knowing that change comes in small increments and is usually not an all at once event.

My Friend’s Experience
Such was the case of a friend of mine who laboured long hours at work but found the time to give his time and talents to a community group. This group had many projects in mind that would help others but only a few could be done at anyone time. One major project was finding the funding to help build a hospice for dying cancer patients. With the help of a lot of local businesses and fund raising events, this project was actually completed and even the land donated by a local church. My friend didn’t stop there either. The building and the services they offered to those people who were approaching death by cancer or other terminal illnesses were absolutely wonderful. A very caring staff was always on duty and volunteers were present throughout the establishment to help in any way they could.

Fate Takes A Turn No One Expected
No one, who was close to my friend, had any idea that this much needed and gracious service would ever be used by any of his family, but fate had another twist to unveil. Several years after the hospice was open, his wife was diagnosed with cancer. And, unfortunately, her condition worsened over the next several years to the point where she couldn’t be cared for any longer at home.

I think you probably know what happened next. She was admitted to a hospice for continued care and it was the very hospice that my friend and his colleagues worked so hard to ensure its services were available to those who needed it.

Small Changes
One never knows what small changes we make over time that can benefit many others. Sometimes, it is little more than a friendly gesture to help someone who is struggling at work and who goes on to achieve great things. Sometimes, it is a lending hand through being a volunteer, or a fundraiser that helps hundreds of needy families. A twist of fate can happen to any of us, and one never knows when your own good deeds come back in the most unusual ways.
