The Power Of Love

The Power Of Love

It was the month of June when we all as a child🧒were eagerly waiting for summer vacation. All of us were so excited as we were expecting a very interesting📝assignment in which we would get a plant🌱from the nursery which we had to nurture over this time⌛.

Deehar finished4️⃣rth grade with excellent✔️marks, and she really wanted to get a🍁Ficus - the most beautiful flower in the nursery. She was disappointed when Nisha,👩‍🏫her teacher, asked to take a rose 🌹with dull leaves, which was placed at the corner.

Deehar👧looked at the teacher, and started thinking that, why did she👩‍🏫give her a dull rose? Why not Ficus🍁? Can't she handle it?

After reaching🏡home, Deehar put the rose🌹on the balcony. After few days, when she was collecting things to go to the grandparents' house, her mom said while closing the last🧳bag, ”Are you missing something?💭”

-🙅No, everything is taken – answered Deehar confidently.
- What about your rose? –🤔surprisingly asked by her mom.
And only then Deehar remembered the plant and🏃ran to the balcony. The leaves completely decomposed after being in the sun🌞all day without water for several days.

At first, Deehar was upset😞but at that moment, an unexpected idea came to her mind🧠, “Mom, the plant is completely wasted🥀. I'll throw it away and buy a new one from the market🛒and take that to school where the teacher👩‍🏫will be glad that I took good care👍of the flower.”

Mom thought💭for a while and said, “How can dad and I give you a dog🐕on your birthday🎉if you couldn't even take care of a flower🌼? How would you🤔take care of a living being? And if you cheat the teacher and receive false❌praise, will you not be ashamed❓”

👴👵Grandparents were waiting for them for a long time⏳. Grandpa began to help to unload things from the car🚗. Finally, Deehar took out her pot with a dried🥀rose bush. When the👵grandma saw that plant, she pulled it and said:

- Deehar, this needs immediate🩺treatment!
- Treatment? – Deehar asked in😲shock, this is a plant, not a human❤️? How to treat it?
- Love! – said the grandma. Darling Deehar👧, because without love nothing grows and doesn't live. All living things need love🥰. When we care with love, sick people🤕are also more likely to recover, and the same with🍀plants. Love is a very strong energy of life.

The next🌅morning, when Deehar woke up and looked out the window, the sun☀️and the birds🐤were inviting her out into the garden, where her grandma was busy with the hedges🌳🌿, and her grandpa held her🥀rose and was putting in a pot that was painted with purple color.

Deehar asked👵Grandma, how to love a flower🌻? I love mom, dad, you, grandpa, and my friends, and this plant, isn’t a human or even an animal🐇?

Deehar, it is clear that you💕love people who love you and care about you but you must also love those whom you can🙋help with your love – Grandma answered wisely. Deehar😕didn’t understand the full meaning of grandma's📝words but that evening🌃she was remembering those words again and again🤔.

She took the vase from the window of her room🚪to the garden and placed it in the sun, and then sprinkled💦some water and gently stroked the weak🍂leaves. She kept doing this every day🌅.

Finally, it was her birthday🎂, she was surprised to see that the rose-leaf was now green🍃with three little buds🌱! And a few days later each bud opened into a fragrant red🌹rose.

On Aug 1, Deehar was overjoyed😊and smiling when she entered the classroom🏫, her teacher was in surprise and said, “Ahh! what a lovely flowerpot!” Deehar was glad to hear that. Every teacher👩‍🏫praised her. But it was even more pleasant to see what a miracle👼her love had done, giving new life🧬to a plant from a dead one.💕Love changed not only the flower but also Deehar, making herself👍caring and responsive🏆.
