He met her at a party. She was so outstanding, many guys chasing after her,
while he was so normal, nobody paid attention to him.
At the end of the party, he invited her to have coffee with him, she was surprised,
but being polite, she agreed.
They sat in a nice coffee shop, he was too nervous to say anything, she
felt uncomfortable, she thought, please, let me go home...
suddenly he asked the waiter: "would you please give me some salt? I'd like to put it in
Everybody stared at him, so strange! His face turned red, but, still, he put the salt in
his coffee and drank it.
She asked him curiously: why do you have this fetish?
He replied: "when I was a little boy, I lived near the sea, I liked playing in the sea, I
could feel the taste of the sea ,
just like the taste of the salty coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee, I always
think of my childhood, think of my hometown,
I miss my hometown so much, I miss my parents who still live there".
While saying that tears filled his eyes. She was deeply touched. That's his true feeling,
from the bottom of his heart.
A man who can tell out his homesickness, he must be a man who loves home,
cares about home, has responsibility of home..
Then she also started to speak, spoke about her faraway hometown, her childhood, her
family. That was a really nice talk,
also a beautiful beginning of their story.
They continued to date. She found that actually he was a man who meets all her demands;
he had tolerance, was kind hearted, warm, careful. He was such a good person but she
almost missed him!
Thanks to his salty coffee! Then the story was just like every beautiful love story,
the princess married to the prince, then they were living the happy life...
And, every time she made coffee for him, she put some salt in the coffee, as she knew
that's the way he liked it.
After 40 years, he passed away, left her a letter which said: "My dearest,
please forgive me, forgive my whole life lie. This was the only lie I said to you---the
Remember the first time we dated? I was so nervous at that time,
actually I wanted some sugar, but I said salt It was hard for me to change
so I just went ahead. I never thought that could be the start of our communication!
I tried to tell you the truth many times in my life, but I was too afraid to do that, as
I had promised not to lie to you for anything..
Now I'm dying, I'm afraid of nothing so I tell you the truth: I don't like the salty
what a strange bad taste.. But I have had the salty coffee for my whole life!
Since I knew you, I never feel sorry for anything I do for you.
Having you with me is my biggest happiness for my whole life. If I can live for the
still want to know you and have you for my whole life, even though I have to drink the
salty coffee again".
Her tears made the letter totally wet. Someday, someone asked her: what's the taste of
It's sweet. She replied.
love is not 2 forget but 2 forgive not 2 c but understand not 2 hear but 2 listen not 2
let go but HOLD ON !!!!
What makes a person so rich? Some say money and some say health,
but for me it is friendship, that carries insurmountable wealth.
