A Love Story provides an inspirational life lesson that will show children and adults what it means to be able to love and forgive.

Preview Passage

The water was so high that Love was no longer able to stand. “Why didn’t I prepare my boat like the other Feelings?” was the only thought that Love was capable of having. Not wanting to die, and not having the strength to continue swimming and looking for help, Love began to think about what the world would be like without Love. What WOULD the world be like without love? Desperate and frightened by this mere thought, Love swam more fiercely and identified another boat within the horizon.

The boat’s haunting appearance was frightening, but Love was too desperate to think about being afraid. As the doom and gloom boat neared, Love cried out once again.

“Oh! Dearest Anger, please show mercy and salvage me from these wretched waters.”
