Surely, They'll enjoy also !
A woman came out of her house and saw three 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 replied. "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 again invited the men in. "We do not go into a house 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. Pointing to another one said, "He is
Success. 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 then be filled with love!"
"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his
"Go out and invite Love to be our guest."
The woman went out and asked of the three 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 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, 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 also is
Wealth and Success!"
