True Love Story - True Value

Is the title of today's Inspirational message.

One day, a young guy and a young girl fell in love.
But the guy came from a poor family. The girl’s
parents weren’t too happy.
So the young man decided not only to court the
girl but to court her parents as well. In time, the
parents saw that he was a good man and was
worthy of their daughter’s hand.
But there was another problem: The man was a
soldier. Soon, war broke out and he was being
sent overseas for a year. The week before he left,
the man knelt on his knee and asked his lady love,
“Will you marry me?” She wiped a tear, said yes,
and they were engaged. They agreed that when he
got back in one year, they would get married.
But tragedy struck. A few days after he left, the girl
had a major vehicular accident. It was a head-on
When she woke up in the hospital, she saw her
father and mother crying. Immediately, she knew
there was something wrong.
She later found out that she suffered brain injury.
The part of her brain that controlled her face
muscles was damaged. Her once lovely face was
now disfigured. She cried as she saw herself in the
mirror. “Yesterday, I was beautiful. Today, I’m a
monster.” Her body was also covered with so
many ugly wounds.
Right there and then, she decided to release her
fiancé from their promise. She knew he wouldn’t
want her anymore. She would forget about him
and never see him again.
For one year, the soldier wrote many letters—but
she wouldn’t answer. He phoned her many times
but she wouldn’t return her calls.
But after one year, the mother walked into her
room and announced, “He’s back from the war.”
The girl shouted, “No! Please don’t tell him about
me. Don’t tell him I’m here!”
The mother said, “He’s getting married,” and
handed her a wedding invitation.
The girl’s heart sank. She knew she still loved him
—but she had to forget him now.
With great sadness, she opened the wedding
And then she saw her name on it!
Confused, she asked, “What is this?”
That was when the young man entered her room
with a bouquet of flowers. He knelt beside her and
asked, “Will you marry me?”
The girl covered her face with her hands and said,
“I’m ugly!”
The man said, “Without your permission, your
mother sent me your photos. When I saw your
photos, I realized that nothing has changed.
You’re still the person I fell in love. You’re still as
beautiful as ever. Because I love you!”
